April Show-ers on Folksy.

Time for an April Show-ers blog once more. The good weather has made the forums a bit quieter on Folksy, but there are still quite a few of us listing. Bet you are glad to know that! Otherwise I might have to fill this space up with endless rhymes, that would be enough to give you nightmares. Ha ha!!
It was another beautiful day yesterday, quite a scorcher. I sat outside and crocheted. I finshed a jug/bowl cover and sewed lots of beads all around it. Then I made a couple of glass covers and matching coasters, all in bamboo yarn. I was really pleased with the way they turned out. Ideal for the summer to stop flys and wasps getting in your drinks while outside. I made the tops with a close stitch and put a lacy stitch for the overhang where the beads are attached to, so even if they land they shouldn`t be able to get in. Yay!!!
As usual, to see a description or larger picture, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!

So warm and sunny yesterday
all I wanted to do was lay
on a comfy sunbed and snooze.
I`ve heard, if you snooze you lose,
so I crocheted outside instead
of lazing on the tempting sunbed.
I worked my fingers to the bone
didn`t even stop for the phone.
I crocheted and beads were sewn
blimey, how the time had flown.
Then my grandaughter came to iron
cos I hate ironing, I`m not lyin`.
She whipped through the pile so fast
and soon was on the very last.
She`s keen to earn her own cash
mainly because she likes to dash
off with her friends, here and there
it usually entails entry and a fare.
She quite admired the odd old ditty
thought they were nice and quite witty.
She said you could be a poet
I quipped back, I just don`t know it.
A hug and a kiss and she was on her way
time for tea, nearly the end of the day!

  8. Great colourful choices and a day crocheting in the garden sounds just wonderful!

    Your jug cover is perfect for the summer like weather and alfresco dining that many of us will be enjoying over the weekend.

    Thank you so much for including my Scammpering Rabbit Charity embroidered ACEO today, he was so happy he has actually scampered out of my shop and gone to a new home.
