February Fruitcakes #Handmade #Folksy

More internet problems, can you believe it? Problems with the phone line is apparently causing it to drop out. Arrrrrgghhhh!!
Just want everything back to normal as it was. You know how that goes... every time you turn it on and go online it`s just there and you don`t even think about it.
Okay whinge over.... for now.
Can you believe that it`s the 2nd day of February already? I can`t. Where did January go so fast.
Now what to have on here today... Of course, it`s obvious. The new february listing club. They are the February Fruitcakes. It kind of carries on the theme doesn`t it? From Nutters to Fruitcakes an obvious transition really.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Natalie of NOfkants Curios for all her hard work through January. Even when she is unwell she still keeps the tallies and spurs us on.
So I have had a quick look through and am delighted by all the wondrous creations I have espied. There are people from last month and I noriced some different peeps as well. So that is really great, more diversity and choice.
The downside of that is of course, a lot more temptation. Eeeeek!! I will try very hard to remain strong in the face of such temptation. An early temptation today was a fantabulous bag. It was Mmmm!! Do you like my new word? A mix of fabulous and fantastic, which the bag certainly warrants. If someone would like to buy the bag and save me from myself I will be evermore grateful.... well maybe not grateful... a bit jealous.... maybe? Very mixed feelings here.
Well I missed listing on this auspicious first day, due to said earlier problems and not having enough time to take photos. I will do better!! Yesterday I was at work so nothing exciting to report, well apart from the lunch time and evening crochet. Two pairs of gloves done, the hat almost finished and as yet nothing more done on the scarf. I confess to keep looking at a new colour I bought in the marbled yarn and wanting to start making something with it. But first i am going to finish the things that are underway.... maybe.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The internet is driving me mad
and sometimes making me very sad.
All I want to do is my blog
but I can`t because of the fog.
It all becomes so frustrating
and it starts becoming grating
on my frazzled, stretched nerves
because the server never serves.
I`m starting to tear my hair out
and beginning to loudly shout,
come back here RIGHT THIS MINUTE
my time on here isn`t finite.
Don`t take away my internet
because I haven`t finished yet!
I have so much more to do and get
done on the computer tonight,
yet the internet has taken flight.
I`ll make promises I won`t keep
because I`m annoyed enough to weep.
I wouldn`t mind but it`s not just me
others are having problems too, you see.
Why now, what is going on?
This is something we all rely upon.
So get yourself sorted please, very fast,
surely all these problems cannot last!!
