Over the Rainbow #FolksyFriday

I was going to do something else entirely when I had a change of heart and went for rainbows. Couldn`t think why they were in my head when I remembered that my niece made a rainbow picture with needle felting and we used my beautiful glass rainbow, that was a gift, to get the right colours in the right order. Doing that reminded me of my 6 year old grandson needle felting a rainbow as part of a picture the previous week and I was telling my sister about it.
My niece really enjoyed the needle felting as have my grandchildren when they`ve tried it. I really like it too, though I haven`t had a chance to do any more since I made a landscape.
Anyway, that`s why the rainbows were in my head obviously, so I just went with it. Hope you like theses beautiful rainbow coloured crafts as much as I do.
Yesterday was pretty much non stop busy. Rushing around first thing in the morning, doing everything at a run. Then off to collect my grandson for a bus ride to the city. We ended up having a lift into the city as his Dad was off to work and offered to take us, but he didn`t mind. We checked out a few toy shops that he fancied looking in. Then we went to buy the wool I needed. Bet you can guess the rest.... yep, I bought quite a few very large balls of yarn. Ooops. Well in my defence they had some new shades in the marbled yarn I love and how could I resist. I couldn`t and ended up lugging a rather large bag around with us. Hmmm. I did tell myself that I would not be buying any more this winter. Might even stick to it... but then probably not.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Reminds me of the rainbow song.
singing that you can`t go wrong.
Always know the colour order
especially if it`s for a border.
Get it wrong and it`s just not right
still looks pretty but not quite
the way it should really look.
There`s only one way in my book.
A world wiithout rainbows would tragic.
Then where would be all the magic?
Everyone needs a rainbow bright
so they can marvel at the sight.
To see one always makes me smile
sometimes it`s been quite a while.
But then suddenly there it is
and life has much more fizz.
Glowing so bright, way up high
that piece of magic in the sky.
Make a wish when you see one,
be quick cos it`ll soon be gone!!
