Hello lovelies! How are we all? Finally wheels are in motion and the blog is up and running. Yay! So.... introductions.
My name is Nerys, I'm 23 and I come from a small village in Pembrokeshire, Wales. I now live in a wee house in Derry City, Northern Ireland with my lovely Derry man. Having unfortunately been unemployed for sooooo long now that my brain was in danger of falling asleep forever, I one day decided to remind myself how to knit. Well people that was it! I gradually learned various crafts, taking sewing/quilting and crochet classes, and teaching myself to felt and embroider. I'm now totally hooked, and completely unable to sit still without clutching some variety of hook or needle. I swear my fingers move of their own accord these days!
So with the job situation looking bleaker and bleaker, I had the idea of trying to earn a living doing what I love to do - crafting! I've had a lot of help from the Princes' Trust and Invest NI's Go For It scheme, and hopefully Crafty Jemima: The Shop will be up and running early in the New Year. Fingers, toes, and all things remotely crossable crossed please!
Unfortunately I haven't failed to notice that my setting up this blog coincides exactly with the return of the dreaded insomnia. Bad omen? I hope not! Thankfully though crafting in your jammies at 4am is perfectly doable, as I am indeed demonstrating right now.
Anyhoo, seeing as it is so late/early, I bid you a very good night/morning - surely I might manage a few hours sleep by now? Thanks for reading and see you soon!
