Textile Love #FolksyFriday

Folksy are holding a competition titled Textile Love so I am going to have a go at it and see how I get on.
How hard can it be with all the delightful textiles we have to offer on Folksy, not to mention the variety of crafts available in those textiles.
So here goes, I shall see what I can find.
I discovered lots of outstanding creations that I haven`t seen before and shops that I haven`t found before. I must say doing this blog is a continual adventure of discovery, constantly uncovering new treasures along the way.
It is of course, as I have said before, a constant temptation too. If I bought everything I loved the look of I would need a few extra houses to put them all in.
As this is for the competition I won`t waffle on forever today, but will chat a bit more tomorow about all the birthdays and goings on in my part of the world. I`m sure you will find it difficult to contain your impatience to hear more riveting details of my life, but you will just have to wait.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Have FUN and ENJOY!!!

Nature provides much incentive
to make our creations live.
Greens of gardens and countryside
the trees and fields, side by side.
Hedgerows too provide many shades
until the summer starts to fade.
The colour of every single flower
can give our crafts much power.
Pastel pretty, dark or bright
all provide a wondrous sight.
Then there`s the blues of the sky
a perfect vista up on high.
The changing hues of a storm
we often think of as the norm.
Stop though and really stare
amazing what is out there.
So many textures, bark, that`s rough
to last so long it has to be tough.
Petals, so silky to the touch,
from flowers that give so much.
Smooth leaves and spongy moss
their absence would be a great loss.
Nature`s changing beauty is all around
and makes our creativity abound!
