The Trilby, it was an experiment and l am pleased it has received such lovely comments.

Folksy Friday, Floral Inspirations!

We have had varied weather, some extremely dull and wet days, to some glorious and bright days, with promise that the good weather will return in a few months time, but there is no escaping the fact that the cooler days are here to stay, and the dark mornings and even darker evenings are fast encroaching into our day light hours, so I thought a little floral lift might be what we all need!

Floral Gallery!

I have found us some floral inspirations to brighten our days, in a variety of crafts and mediums, but all of them beautiful.

Please just click on the items to make a perfect boquet, to view each item in its shop and for a full description and even more beautiful photographs.

I hope you have enjoyed my posy of items this Friday and will show your appreciation by visiting them in the shops where they grow.

Thank you.

Back to Blogging!
I have been having difficulty of late with my blog, writing blogs has been impossible, even commenting on other peoples blogs has been hard to do, but hopefully some of my blogging gremlins may be behind me, if not totally gone, at least allowing me to complete a semblance of a blog to support my fellow crafters.
This will be my first blog for the September Embers, and we are already more than half way through the month, I have been promoting via Facebook, stumbling and voting for items on craftjuice, as well as attempting to support as much as possible on the daily listing thread, keeping a tally of sales and generally happy hot coal dancing for every ones successes.
Rainbows and a Riot of Colour!
This morning I listed two items, instead of my usual one, but once I got going with this wonderful yarn, I just had to complete the ensemble and list them side by side. I will admit to being a little in love with this designer yarn, it is a real treat to work with, but as it is so expensive, I cannot afford to create with it that often.
I also discovered some gorgeous and colourful items from my fellow embers that I would like to share with you.

Sorry if this blog is not up to my usual standard, or as full and vibrant with listings as normal, but this is just about all my blogging gremlins will allow me to do for now.
Once I have posted something, it is refusing to let me move it around, so appologies for any blogging mishaps.
Please show your appreciation and support by viewing the wonderful creations by my fellow crafting Embers.
Thank you.
