Nikki's Paper Piecing Blog Hop - Day Two

Welcome to day two of Nikki's first ever Paper Piecing Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from my oober talented sister, Linda, you are in the right spot.  If you want to start at the beginning you can start at Nikki's blog.  I have the full line up at the end of my posting.

For my project today, I have "Reindeer Poop".  My grandest daughter and I have been making these and she's had so much fun watching people laugh.  She can barely wait to shout out, "It's really chocolate covered raisens" - then collapsing in a fit of giggles.

This little reindeer is so much fun.  He almost looks like he's saying, "Oops, was that me?"  Lexi has been coloring them and cutting them out, she's having so much fun.   We layered all our pieces and attached them to a snack bag filled with chocolate covered raisens.  I think this would be a fun thing to give out to her pre-school class.  Here's what the little poem says,

I woke with such a fright when I heard Santa call...
"Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts,
those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts."

I got an old shovel and started to scoop
neat little piles of reindeer poop!
But to throw them away seemed such a waste,
so I saved them, thinking-you might like a taste!
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile,
Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled.
And I heard him exclaim as he sped off in the sky...
"Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"

Now your next stop on this hop is the talented Mindy  If you get lost along the way, here is the line-up:
