Orange Zest #FolksyFriday

I saw a fabulous collection in apricot and had a look under apricot then tried orange and loved the bright zestiness in the oranges so have decide to go with that for my Folksy Friday.
It seems to be the right time of year for orange with mostly bright summer days at the minute as well as real warmth.
I missed doing a Folksy friday last week as I was away enjoying myself in Northumberland, so it`s nice to be doing one again this week. Doesn`t take long for everything to get back to normal. As soon as you are home and you get started on the washing that`s it. Not to mention going back to work and getting back into the routine of daily listing and blogging. My holiday seems a long way away now.
I haven`t manged to get any more photographing done yet but I have been preparing drafts of new items that I photographed the other week. Where does the time go?
I`m still doing lots of crochet although I didn`t do much in my week off, just finished a scarf and made 3 hats. The christmas items are coming along nicely. I shall make a batch and then do the finishing etc before taking pics and listing. The way things are going it could be another month before you see them. I seem to be getting so behind with everything.
Never mind it will all come right in the end.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!
What do you think of orange zest?
I think it`s just the best.
Great for a summers day
makes you want to stop and play.
It will make a grey day bright
every time that you catch sight
of this delightful colour of orange.
This sight might make you binge
and want to have a buying spree
as these delights fill you with glee.
Things to make a home light up
and make you want to sup
from the cup of handmade
a delight that will never fade.
Orange is a summer sun
sinking as the day is done.
It`s a full moon hanging low
giving a very strange glow.
It`s a glass of bubbling drink,
now doesn`t that make you think?
I bet you now have a thirst
that`s ready to make you burst.
Before you go have a view
of these creations made for you!!
