Hellooooo my lovelies!
Hello and welcome to my very first blog post, I'm April Towriess a thirty-something crocheting mum from Nottingham.
With only 5 days to go until I hit the 'Publish' button for my website and little business I thought I'd give you all a little breakdown of whats been going on in my wonderfully busy creative world.
I am months behind my original deadline date and if you've been following my progress for a while you will know why. I am a full time mummy to two beautiful girls aged 2 and 3 (I must be crazy! with only 13 months between them they keep me busy), I work part time as a graphic designer and marketing assistant and I try and play at being housewife... rather unsuccessfully sometimes I may add. As well as all of this I am designing some exciting and original crochet patterns that I can't wait to share with you and teaching you lovely lot how to crochet.
It has been an amazing journey so far and I have met some incredibly talented people along the way, its just taken me a lot longer than I'd hoped. In a previous life (pre-children) this would have seriously disheartened me but with the support of my amazing family and friends I now believe that great things take time. I have enjoyed the process and look forward to sharing more with you soon.
I'd love to hear from you so please say hello, share your crochet stories or ask me any questions you my have - I'm always happy to chat.
Here's a sneaky peek at some of the things I have been working on over the past few months.
Hi, I'm April.
Crochet designer and tutor based in Nottingham.
