About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

What has red legs and makes loads of noise at 4.30am???

 Well this little fella of course, strutting his stuff on our front path. Its a red legged partridge.
The photos aren't the best as I was trying to hang out of the window - at 4.30am!!! - without scaring him/her off. He was making a heck of a racket strutting around my son's car. So much so we though he must be lost or off course.
However I've since learned that our neighbours have seen him/her several times since, so he's obviously a local.
Fabulous sight so he's forgiven for making the din.

Hope you've enjoyed the change from the normal crafting photos, x


  1. Birds can be a nusience when they start early in the day but this little one looks brilliant.

  2. Partridges are so cute! I've only ever seen one. Have a great week end
