This is a bit like opening a lovely new sketchbook and wondering what to draw on the first page (although not so bad because there is always ‘delete’!)
So, I guess a bit of background info might be useful. I have blogged before (here) but gave up when my other half & I started our shop (Folly Fabrics) 3 years ago. For various reasons, we made the decision to close and we are now almost done with all the clearing out, moving of stuff and other post-shop things which need to be done. We are then looking forward to spending the summer recharging our batteries (fingers crossed for lots of nice weather) and deciding what to do next.
I have plans to continue doing workshops and classes (probably starting in the Autumn) and I am also currently working my way through Joeli’s Tech Editing course (loving it!) with the long-term goal of offering my services as a tech editor. I also have some designs I want to publish (stuff I created to support some of the workshops & classes I taught at the shop) and I have a long list of other things on my ‘todo’ list!
I decided I needed a new ‘home’ on the web so I will be blogging here from now on. My other half came up with the name – I wanted something which wasn’t too specific because I like to do lots of things! We aren’t far from the Ridgeway and we quite often go up there with our dog (Pippin) for walks. Dragon Hill is next to the famous White Horse at Uffington – it’s the distinctive little ‘mound’ on the bottom left of this photo (taken by me on a walk a few years ago):

Looking forward to reading about your new venture. I only visited your lovely shop once as I live in Norfolk, a bit of a treck! I hope you will be posting some crafty bits and pieces. Perhaps a few online tutorials as well! Good luck. Sally
