#Random Saturday. #Handmade #Folksy

After having a couple of themed blogs I think that today, I will go for random craft items that happen to catch my eye. It`s nice to have a wander and see the new listings that folk have in their shops. Very tempting though, but I will stay strong. I hope!
I have found some gorgeous listings and quite a variety too. I hope you will like them as much as I do.
I have been busy making new things. The other day I bought a large amount of new yarn and promised myself that I wouldn`t start on it yet. I failed miserably lasting about 24 hours before I just had to get some out and make something. I was quite good yesterday and did manage to spend a bit of time finishing a couple of things. It wasn`t nearly the several hours I had promised myself but I spent some time with my youngest grandson instead, a good trade I think. I will just have to attack the `to finish` pile again today and hopefully get a bit more done. I have things made that just need a button and have sat there for a couple of months. Ridiculous I know, but I don`t enjoy sewing like I do crochet or knitting. Crochet is definitely my favourite though. Haven`t even had a chance to do much more on my new loom either. I need more pairs of hands and more hours in the day.
As usual, to see a description or a bigger picture, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

I just need more hours in the day
then I would have more time to play,
at all of my favourite things
crafting gives my fingers wings.
Doing what I love they fly so fast
time whizzes by, it just doesn`t last.
I need more hands to keep up with my brain
it`s come up with lot`s more ideas again.
No time to play with my loom
there won`t be a textile boom.
At least there won`t be just yet
buit I`ll get there don`t you fret.
No time for painting,
please don`t go fainting.
I`m doing my best to keep ahead
I`m worn out when I go to bed.
Promoting and crafting, housekeeping too
at times I feel like I`m in a stew.
Cooking and cleaning and blogging as well
I`m getting knackered, can you tell?
Trying to find time to build a website
produces dark circles that give me a fright.
Too many irons in the fire at once
maybe that makes me some kind of dunce.
But it`s all because I love what I do
and want to show it to all of you!
