all my troubles seemed so far away.

Now it looks as though they're here to stay,

Oh, I believe in yesterday.


I'm not half the van I used to be,

There's a shadow hanging over me.

Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go,

I don't know, she wouldn't say.

I said something wrong...

Now I long for yesterday.


love was such an easy game to play.


 I need a place to hide away,


I believe...

in yesterday.

Crafty ways make yesterday.

I'm forever sewing buttons...

pretty buttons everywhere.

I rarely buy them, they just seem to grow.
Do you have that problem?
I have a house full.

I have been trying to use them up.

A lucky button for exam season?

or is this more appropriate? 

A mutton button?

The girls were not amused.

 They were getting bored.
I offered them a button modelling assignment...

but they preferred pins.

I've been foraging for our 'garden fete' on Saturday.

The weather forecast is dreadful...
thunderstorms and lightening, very very frightening me!

I may need that panic button!

Crafty ways make risky days
but it's all worth it when you find 5 yards of kittens...

My sewing skills are limited so... bags, cushions or pinnies? 
What do you think?

Poetry in Motion

My little owl was feeling low
And so I perked her with a bow.

My ironing board was weary too
And so I covered it with blue.

The seagull's flying low today,
I hope he doesn't fly away.

My puzzle needed just a clean
And then wrapped up in polythene.

'Tis market time again, you see
And I'm as busy as a bee.

Gathering bits and bob's to sell,
Have I got a hope in hell?

You may have guessed my purchase new,
Let me show a little clue...

Crafty ways make rhyming days.
