Orange Folksy Friday

Tonight is my daughters Christmas Fair at school. This year instead of just any old donations for the Tombola, the Parents Association have asked that we donate something of a particular colour. Each year group has a different colour and the class with the most donations gets a prize. Year 1 has been assigned the colour orange. Hmmm! I racke my brains for weeks trying to come up with something different that was orange. Terry's Chocolate Orange? Too predictible, Marmalade? Better. Anyway, on Wednesday in a fit of inspiration I dug out some orange felt and made a flower brooch. I also made an orange Birthday card and found an orange necklace I had made. Sorted!

So I decided that I would use the theme Orange for a Folksy Friday to see what lovely things other Folksters make that is orange!

I didn't realise just how stunning a colour orange is, now where did I put that orange felt?
