My name is Ellen and welcome to my blog.
I am 31 years old (eek!) and live in North Yorkshire, a beautiful and rural county in the North of England, UK.
I originally started this blog in June 2015, a few months after having had surgery on the bones of my foot. I had lots of time to spare what with being all but bed-ridden for several months. I had always wanted to have a blog and write and share stuff but I convinced myself it was too hard and technical for me, so it never appeared – how wrong I was! I am really enjoying learning about blogging as I do it and connecting with people…I have gained so much inspiration from other people’s blogs which I never would have come across if not for making my own! I love having the opportunity to write about and share my random world and at the same time have a nosy at what other people are writing. Nosiness…it’s a female thing!
I plan to blog about my interests, hobbies and random stuff. The more eclectic the better I say! I like reading, writing, crochet, sewing, cross stitch, making my own candles (not aesthetically pleasing yet but perfectly functional!), and would love to have a go at lots of other crafts, in particular willow basket making and stained glass! As of 2016 I am a new knitter and have took to it like a duck to water as the saying goes – I can’t believe how easy it is after years of thinking it was the hardest thing in the world to do!
I studied German at university and love anything to do with languages and translation so who knows, maybe something will slip in from time to time!
I also like reading about environmental issues and greening up your life, so definitely some posts about that!
A nice mix of crafty projects, interesting things to check out and read, and life in general is the aim of this blog, although I get the feeling that crochet will feature heavily!
Thanks for reading 🙂
