July Jewels #Handmade #Folksy

I think we should have a July Jewels day today. For those that don`t know it`s the daily listing club on Folksy. The club has been running since April 2010 I believe and has continued ever since. I belonged for 10 months and it helped me a lot, as I joined when I opened my shop in September. They are a very supportive bunch of people and it has a nice community feel. I have taken 2 months off to prepare for the season ahead and so far am getting on pretty well. I am hoping to get lot`s made and photographed while the weather is good, then it won`t be such a rush.
So today in support of the listing club I am showing some of their wonderful creations. I can of course only show so many and if you want to see more you will have to look on the Folksy Forum in Chittah Chattah for the July Jewels thread.
Not much to report for yesterday really as I was at work. Got some crocheting done in my lunch hour and did some for a couple of hours in the evening. I am pleased with everything I`ve completed so far. The only shame is that having discovered this wonderful textured yarn I only have so much and once it is gone cannot get anymore as it is discontinued. I have to admit that it is a pain to work with because of the various strands, but I love the finished effect and it`s worth the extra time.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The grass is green once more and really growing
think it`s to do with the rain that keeps flowing.
The flowers that looked so proud and tall
have been battered and now look small.
So many destroyed by the rain
that crushed them again and again.
The trees though are leafy and green
looking as good as I`ve ever seen.
The weeds are growing like mad
and that`s very definitely bad.
Why can`t it just rain at night
and disappear when it gets light.
Then we`ll have sun through the day
great for everyone to have fun and play.
There`d be barbecues and picnics too
outdoor living all day through.
We need the seasons to return,
I think they would if we learn
to take care of the planet better
doing our bit, recycling every letter.
If we don`t take care, we won`t be here
to see this land that we all hold dear.
It won`t happen now or affect us,
folk think we`re making a big fuss.
It`s for the future, for those to come,
that we can no longer play dumb.
So do your bit with a smile
and try to go the extra mile!
