How It All Started

Hi, my name is Karen and I would like to introduce myself to you all as a new blogger.  I am a divorced mother of 3 adult children and I live with my youngest daughter, Emily and my dog Megan.

In November 2007 I was taken ill at work and subsequently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  I went from working full time, going to the gym and socialising, to losing my ability to do all the things I used to love and take for granted.  As a result of this I have had to re-evaluate my life and I re-discovered my love of crafting.

I focus on textiles, knitting and crocheting, where I can work on projects according to my physical ability.  I am still developing on the crochet front but am getting there.  Over the coming months I am hoping to be able to share my crafts with you all - I will post photos of my projects and would welcome any feedback from fellow crafters and those who would just like to have a browse.

Here is a little cushion I made for my new and first granddaughter, Elliot, for her nursery.
