Hello there! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.
So here it is, my very first blog post. EVER! EEK! I feel like I’ve been preparing for this for ages, but I’m nowhere near ready and have just decided to take the plunge this afternoon and see where it goes.
This post is just to introduce myself and let you know how this started; I’d let you know what to expect and what’s coming but as I just decided to go ahead with this this afternoon, I’m rather unprepared. But. LIFE!
So I’m Sherelle, I’m 31 and a stay at home Mum to a completely crazy and exceedingly beautiful, soon to be threenager. In a previous life, I was an avid xbox gamer, I sang more, I rode a Pinarello and I was a full time fully qualified Dispensing Optician. Since becoming a Mum I’ve been trying to find “my thing” again. I knew that even though I was pretty good at it, I didn’t want to go back to Optics. I want to do something that means I can control my time and be with G. I tried gardening, Beachbody, got back in to knitting, and just didn’t feel 100% with any of them.
Early this year I received a handmade hoodie from a friend of my Mum’s who lives in the Isle of Man. At the time, I just marvelled at the beauty and how I wish I could make something like that and then carried on with life. One day I was stood doing the ironing looking at clothes that were too big for G, wishing I knew how to alter them to fit, when the lightbulb moment happened. I could change that; IF I LEARNED HOW TO SEW! And that’s how this idea began.
In my next blog post, I think I’ll try and tell you what I did next so that you can skip the stuff you don’t need and get to grips with what you do need.
