My first blog post!

Hi everyone (Im hoping more than one person reads this!)

Welcome to my blog. Ive been meaning to set one up for AGES but I keep thinking, who on earth will be interested in what I have to say?! But today I thought, if you dont try you'll never know, so here it goes.

I thought Id start my first blog post with a bit about me. My name is Laura, and by day I am a nurse (or by night depending on my rota!). I currently work in a neonatal intensive care unit which is amazingly rewarding but also amazingly stressfull. This is why I started crocheting. I find it soothing and therapeutic. Then I started sewing - also soothing and therapeutic until you stab yourself with a needle, bad times :-(

To fund my hobby and to stop my house overflowing with things I've made, I sell some of my creations on folksy, and at craft fairs.

I have just got married to my amazing husband Peter, and we have just bought our first house. I feel like a propper grown up now! We are currently destorying said house with our attempts at DIY. Hopefully it will soon be fit for human habitation!

Anyway, I dont want to start boring you all, as no one will ever come back if I do that!
Thanks for reading
