#BLUE #Handmade #Folksy

Thought I would go for blue today. There are so many wonderful shades from ultra pale to the darker navy and all those in between. I popped a thread on Folksy saying show your blues and these are a few of the wonderful items that appeared. When I had a look through my shop I realised that lately I seem to have added a lot of blue creations. Not quite sure why but I do seem to have phases on styles and colours.
Yesterday I was very busy, updating my website and making new things. Apart from a visit to take magazines to an unwell lady for an hour or so, I got stuck into creating. I do seem to be making things for the winter too, although it does seem to be a bit early.
I also spoke to my daughter in Switzerland via the computer. Well, she spoke and I messaged, as I tried all ways and means but couldn`t get either of my microphones to work. Am going to get a new one and a web cam tomorrow morning. the web cam will come in handy as I have been thinking of doing little `How to` videos on crocheting. You know, like basic starter stitches, then flowers and maybe how to do the ringlet effect. They are so easy to do and look very pretty. So many different types of tutorials could be done I suppose. Not sure I could describe them adequately by writing, but showing is different. That won`t be just yet though, I will have to get the hang of it first and then learn how to put it on here. It`s quite exciting trying new things out. Worst comes to the worst I will ask the grandchildren to help. Well the older two anyway and 12 & 14 they tend to be better at things like that.
I think I`ve waffled on long enough. Just realised I was geting a bit carried away again.
As usual, to see a description or a bigger picture, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Today I`ve chosen all in blue,
to brighten up the day for you.
Come closer now, quick gather round,
because on here, good things abound.
It`s such a soothing colour, blue
and on here I`ve gathered a few.
Delectable delights for your perusal,
no, I don`t want to hear a refusal.
They all look so very pretty
unlike this little ditty.
Does wearing blue make you feel good
because you know, it really should.
Soothing, calming, it almost casts a spell
that`s why we love the sea and sky as well.
When they are blue we all feel great
hardly anyone seems to get irate.
Although folks say they feel blue,
does that ring a bell for you?
Such a lovely colour isn`t bad
should be associated with being sad.
So many gorgeous shades to choose
anything blue gets lots of views.
So come and check out each shop
I promise it`s only a short hop.
You`re sure to find some treasure
so have a browse at your leisure!!
