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.

Springwatch in Delamere

I just had to share this fabulous sight with you. Five bluetits feeding from our bird feeder. Unfortunately the camera wasn't at hand the day before when there were eight....YES 8.... 6 babies and 2 adults all either feeding or playing on the feeder. It was like their own adventure playground. The babies were grooming and feeding each other too. It was a wonderful sight to see and I was afraid to fetch the camera for fear of missing any of the action.

I would like to point out that since the photo was taken hubby has changed the water bowl.... the birds didn't seem to mind the 'gunk' but I did. So now they have a nice clean swimming pool/drinking bowl.
I also wanted to share these beautiful tulips. I've grown to love tulips as I've got older and appreciate their gorgeousness...is that a word???
They're nearly finished now so a fresh bunch will need to be purchased at the next opportunity.

Next time I'll share some of my finished UFO's, x
