Let's make a start....

I've followed the blogs of others for too long now so here goes.....maybe I should start by a little about me?
I'm a country girl with simple needs who's aim in life is to put a smile on at least one face every day....and I never fail.
Having brought up my family and given them all my time and attention when they needed it most I needed a new challenge when they got older. I have always been interested in crafts and sewing so I retrained as a tailoress and ran a small alterations and repairs department in our local town centre. This gave me the skills I needed but not the job satisfaction so I decided to set up working for myself from home. When I took the plunge 5 years ago and set up my business with my sewing machines I debated if I would ever get enough customers, as I live in a village pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but as I now have well over 800 customers I think I can now stop holding my breath and relax knowing it's successful [as long as they don't all turn up on the same day!].

Hey! hello - so pleased you've got started, welcome to Blogland. I have really appreciated your comments on my blog so am very pleased to be able to reciprocate!
My mum's from Shropshire - grew up in Ludlow and we still have family ties there although my grandparents have died now. I LOVE the place.
