NovemberNexus Delights #Handmade #Folksy

As you can see we have a lovely display from the November Nexus listing club today. The diversity of crafts is truly amazing as is the quality and beautiful workmanship. Considering that most of these are One of a Kind the prices are pretty amazing too. When you think that people pay hundreds of pounds for a `designer` item that is made in the hundreds or thousands, I think the prices are stunning.
I was reading an article in a Sunday magazine about the way people are going back to basics, sewing and cooking and growing their own food. It just goes to show that people really are getting fed up with the mass produced market.
I was at work yesterday but as always was crocheting before work, at lunchtime and again in the evening. I am busy making a red slouchy beret as someone enquired about one. So the other hat I started making has gone on the back burner for a bit.
My oldest grandson popped round after tea as he wanted to know how to cast off a small blanket he`d been knitting. he`d tried knitting before but it hadn`t quite clicked but this time it did and he did really well.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

What are you looking for today,
something special? You just have to say.
We do our best to help you out
cos about our crafts we are devout.
We love nothing better than to create,
the creating appetite we have to sate.
The crafting need is very strong,
when away from it, we really long
to return to our artistic work,
it`s one thing we never shirk.
I walk around with my head in a cloud
don`t hear anything, even when it`s loud.
I think most of us are the same
we truly love the crafting game.
A sale is exciting, a very great high
and lack of them really makes us sigh.
Then we wonder if what we`ve made is bad,
the very thought makes us so sad.
Then something is bought and on it`s way
and once more we are ready for play.
The hectic crafting life isn`t easy
the amount of work would make some queasy.
But we do what we love and love what we do,
making wonderful creations especially for you!
