April Diamonds #Folksy

I have dropped into the daily listing club on Folksy several times already this month, just can`t help myself. I had already decided to show off their fab listings, it was just the when that kept eluding me. This month they are called the April Diamonds, in case you didn`t guess from the title.
Natalie of NOfkants Curios is of course presiding over the daily listing club, keeping it going, updating, chivvying and cheering everyone along. There`s a lot of time and effort keeping something like that going month after month and year after year too. I think I`m right in saying that it`s been going for 3 years now or it could be longer. Time flies when you`re having fun.
I have no doubt that before long I shall be back there joining in. It`s one of those things that becomes addictive.
Anyway what have I been doing? Catching up on computer stuff, updating sites, catching up on promotional things etc. I have, as you know written out a couple of patterns for gloves which entailed pulling them out of my head and putting them down on paper or at least computer. A mix of clear instructions and pictures, not an abbreviation in sight. I want my patterns to be ones I could follow easily, because as you know I don`t follow patterns because they always seem so complicated. I did once make some baby bootees from a pattern for someone but it was such hard going. Having to constantly count stitches and rows and recheck what abbreviations meant, took a long time with all that faffing too.
Anyway, I think I might do a Scoodie pattern next or a hat or maybe......... Aaarrgghh!! Must stop there, the brain is going into overdrive at the thought.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

These aren`t diamonds in the rough
these are crafters who are tough.
Working daily from morning till night
usually up and starting at first light.
Add families and jobs into the pot,
sometimes it gets far too hot.
House and home too have to be done
all before getting to the crafting fun.
Paperwork too and all stuff online
once that`s done it`s all fine.
Except by now it`s almost too late
this is often a crafter`s fate.
So much to do and so little time
not getting to crafting is a crime.
Life for us can be so very contrary.
like the amount of time available can vary.
When we have the ideas, time disappears
when the ideas vanish spare time appears..
One of the many vagaries of life
like too much fun or too much strife!!
