Moody Blue #Handmade #Folksy

Oh dear, there`s a bit of a furore going on at Folksy. They seem to have suddenly decided that all sorts of sellers no longer qualify under the handmade rules.
Apparently I am covered as even though yarn is mass produced it is okay to use it. Phew. I am also covered on the pattern bit too. See, not being able to follow a pattern is obviously now a good thing. I am so glad they make them appear complicated and I never managed to follow one from the start. Woo Hoo!!!
Joking aside, it`s very sad to see so many sellers leaving. It certainly isn`t good publicity for the site when so many people are up in arms about their treatment, because then it is the talk of Facebook and Twitter too. I do hope it all gets sorted out and we don`t lose any more lovely people.
Enough of that for now, will keep you posted.
Not really sure what to put on here today, with all the goings on I haven`t given it much thought. I will go and have a look and see what I can find.
You`ll be glad to know that I finally got my haircut. Yay!!! I also bought some much larger knitting needles. Not the massive ones, but much larger and I shall be having a go with them.
The Poncho is being edged now, but it`s not reeeeally finished... it needs a bit more, but I`m not sure what exactly. I think I went about it the wrong way and after all the work I`m not taking it out, not yet anyway. I will give it some thought because I love how it looks so far, apart from being unfinished.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

So there I was, feeling blue,
just didn`t know what to do!
So I went for a look around
and just see what I found.
First I found a Fairy Door,
I`ll go for cute, look for more!
So I looked for inspiration
came across another creation.
Then a pattern began to appear,
not what I intended, oh dear!
Every single thing I chose,
yes, it really all goes
together so very well,
there is a theme can you tell.
Now the colour matches my mood
and that really gives me food
for thought, as I hadn`t meant
to have a theme, cos` inspiration went.
It got up and went out the door,
I just wasn`t inspired any more.
Far too sad at losing friends,
I hope Folksy quickly makes amends.
Before we lose anymore good folk
it really is not a joke.
We like lot`s of diversity,
it makes better shopping you see!

  2. As you say, it's so sad. I need to look at the new rules but like you I never follow patterns. Even when I try I change things.
    Lovely choices today. I hope they're all staying.

  4. This is the first I have heard about any furore on Folksy but, as you know, I live in a wee world of my own! Will have to check out the blog and new rules now. Thanks so much for including Bluebell fairy's wee door as it is the first one I have made for months and only just listed it. Such lovely blue items today - I like them all! Pat xx
