Well here it goes. Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been thinking about doing this for some time now and thought I would just bite the bullet and get on with it.
As you can see from my profile I am 23 and living at home with my parents, brother and not forgetting our cat Molly. For a few years now I have dreamed about buying my own house with my boyfriend in the countryside. I can picture it now, lots of handmade furnishings, a gorgeous smelling kitchen, a huge garden with home grown vegetables with some chickens and pigs, the fresh air and being a part of a friendly village community. As well as this dream I have one other, to have and run my own business, a home furnishings and gift boutique (isn’t this what many girls dream of nowadays?).
For almost a year now I have been learning to sew (aided with a trusted machine) and am looking to venture further and learn how to knit, you will have to stay tuned to hear how that goes! I am hoping with having this blog it will encourage me to pull my finger out and get on with my hobby, extend my skills and start my business. There is no looking back now. I am going to start off small and work my way upwards.
Here is the start of my journey and I look forward to sharing it with you.
