Reindeer #FolksyFriday

I couldn`t decide what to have on here today. I dilly dallied about, looked around and still couldn`t make up my mind. It was getting late and I just couldn`t settle on a theme at all. There was something I had thought of a couple of days ago but would it come to mind? Would it heck!
Didn`t help having a woolly head from a cold, just couldn`t get into it at all. My 13 yr old grandson had come round to earn some pocket money and do the ironing so I asked him. He came up with a few things but they weren`t quite right. I wanted something that was related to Christmas but different. So we batted it back and forth for a bit and then he suggested reindeer`s.
That was it, it reminded me I`d seen a couple on the Folksy front page and thought it would make a good Folksy Friday. So here we have it.
I found such a good variety of crafts featuring reindeer`s that I was surprised I hadn`t thought of it before.
Yesterday was very cold. I had my youngest grandson but he didn`t want to go out at all. He had already decided that he wanted to play on the Wii. So we got it set up and the time flew as we played. By the time he had had enough it was almost lunchtime. He had his lunch and a play and after I took him home, I got busy cutting out felt for needle books. I had a nice pile by the time I had finished, so I was pleased with my efforts.
Now all I have to do is sew them together. Hmmmm.... Anyway know of a sewing fairy?
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Yesterday morning I saw a rainbow
it set the sky all a glow.
A massive arch in the sky,
a bit of magic up on high.
So big and vibrant it had a shadow
sitting so close to the bow.
Haven`t seen one that big in a while
and it really made me smile.
I stood and gazed as the rain came down
it was like the downturned smile of a clown.
So beautiful it gave me a lift
to see this gorgeous nature`s gift.
How many people never saw
it as they rushed out the door?
So many folk never ever see
nature`s glorious gallery.
Far too busy on the treadmill
to stop, enjoy and drink their fill.
So stop and look once in a while
to put away in your memory file!!
