Creative March Makers #FolksyFriday

I went looking for a theme for my Folksy Friday and instead ended up having a look through the March Makers thread for 28th March. I saw the first picture (lower down) and that was it, I just had to add it and then I saw more things that just had to be included. Then that was it the blog kind of did itself. I think you will agree though that these crafts are wonderful and in need of a wider audience.
Yesterday I decided to have my eyes tested as I had a free coupon for Vision Express. You know me, impulsive, don`t want to wait or make an appointment ahead of time. I went along and yes they had an appintment in 40 minutes time. Hmm... should I shouldn`t I? Well I did as I had a parcel to post first. Lucky it was that amount of time to spare as the queue was massive, 30 people a head of me. Oh dear. Not much choice but to wait there as there are now so few Post Offices anymore.
Anyway got back in time for my appointment and there was a miracle. It wasn`t a conveyor belt I saw two people who did the lot between them and that was it time to move on and choose glasses. Woo Hoo!
Anyway, I finished the jug cover I started the day before and started another which is almost finished now, so that`s good.
Had the four grandchildren round for tea and was busy bouncing with the youngest two on the trampoline. It`s a big one, 13 ft across and surrounded with safety net, so ideal for them. My younger daughter popped in after tea too, so it was fun all round. Just as I was putting tea out my sister came round to bring some flowers which was lovely but she didn`t stay as we were about to eat, so I missed out on a chat there. Hopefully though we will get together over the school holidays and catch up then. Quite a busy little time.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Spring is sprung, the grass is grown,
don`t let your equilibrium be thrown.
I thought, I hoped the summer had come
but April chill will have us under the thumb.
The cold is returning but don`t you fret,
enjoy the now, it`s not here yet.
The warmth and brightness of the summer sun
makes you want to be outside and have fun.
Already it`s turning, the wind feeling chill
that won`t give anyone a thrill.
Yet now each cool spell is less,
I prefer warmth, I must confess.
So clouds, clouds please go away,
I don`t want to see you today.
I would like to keep the sun
because as yet I`m not done.
I haven`t had my fill of spring
want to keep feeling that zing.
Getting used to this early summer
losing it would be a bummer.
So clouds I beg you to depart
and give summer a chance to start!
Almost time for the weekend
and Nature`s ready to send
a chill across the land once more
now isn`t that a real bore!!

  6. That sounds like a horrible PO queue! We're lucky in our PO as there's a fastdrop point for parcels if you do your postage on line & we also have a weigh & pay machine. Spoilt!
    Thanks again for popping my chicken in your selection today - as usual a lovely bunch of cleverness on show :) Shaz x

  9. Great choices and a great post, sounds like a hectic day. Its really important to keep up with eye tests, we crafters rely so much on good eyesight or good glasses.
