- cockney blonde
- 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.

My sudden departure from blogland was due to the fact that my Mum got taken into hospital on 19th August and basically I was there 24/7 until she sadly passed away on 3rd September.
All I'm doing today is letting you all know that I'm still here and will be back shortly with crafting makes to show you, but today I am sharing with you the beautiful flowers we chose for her funeral.
I was wanting to match as closely as possible the colour of Mum's wedding dress and the Gerbera fitted the bill perfectly according to my cousin who was about 10 at the time.
