24 Jul, 2009

 

Deer all,
May I join in too? I'll just have to keep the wood away from my dogs or it will never get beyond the log stage!

24 Jul, 2009

24 Jul, 2009

Good for you Jacque , phil can still make one for you then you will have a pair , ' him and hers ' :o)

Welcome to GOY penkate , it,s a great site :o)

24 Jul, 2009

 

Jeepers what have I started I have only been gone 18 hours - I am going to make a note in my diary to remind you all - I have visions of Sandras being pink and fluffy and Eileens will have a wooly hat on - if noseypotter joins in it will look like a a real deer (and he will win) crazydi's will have fairy wings - mine will probabley wither, get green fly and die before the end - where will it all end ....... Think Ajay & Peter should be the judges

24 Jul, 2009

 

My budgie, Crocus, has suggested wooden budgie perches to make the legs...
Eileen, you need everything on stilts in your garden to cope with the floods :o(

24 Jul, 2009

 

Great idea........count me in.....my fire will be toasty all winter practising these! Lol!

24 Jul, 2009

 

lol aye TT i sure do

24 Jul, 2009

 

Angie as long as you dont put your deers in a hanging basket they will be fine lol

24 Jul, 2009

 

exactly Janey, all that practise will be put to good use

24 Jul, 2009

 

I think I have solved all your problems of shortage of logs well most of you, just up the road from me they sell logs for the fires why not try one who sells them they advertise too. I wonder who will put the spots on their bodies, my favourite animal as well, I use to go to charlcote park to see them, as for waiting for winter I think its hear now with the weather we are getting, don't forget their antlers too ladies and gents. he he you then could hook bird feeders from them. Is Toto going to be Father Christmas he he he.

BJS great to hear you are up for this , it will be some fun lol

25 Jul, 2009

 

Sorry Irish I will not be as I can hardly move in winter time through my atheritis as I have it not only in my hips and back but my neck and arms too, I will see if there is some thing smaller and softer wood to carve but don't hold your breathe as they say.

25 Jul, 2009

 

aw Morgana im sorry to hear that. xx

25 Jul, 2009

 

Thank you Irish, I believe laughter is the best medicine and on here I laugh a lot at the comments made, I once said to a dissability doctor I like to make people laugh, he said laughter is the best medicine as it exercises every muscle in your body.

25 Jul, 2009

 

Bill & benn would love them as playmates

I'd like to......but I'm wondering where on earth to get logs from? Are you actually allowed to go into the woods and carry away armfulls of logs??!! Don't want to get arrested and have to spend Chrissy banged up LOL

28 Jul, 2009

 

hi Sarah, you could try asking council workers for some logs if you see them chopping trees in the autumn. you can also buy bags of logs.
buttttttt you could use anything wooden, match sticks , old pallets anything lol

28 Jul, 2009

Sid
Sid
 

Dining room chairs? Would that work?

29 Jul, 2009

 

Aye Sid...then your guests can sit on reindeer instead of chairs.How novel is that !! Lol

29 Jul, 2009

 

Decided since It was MY idea to start a winter project of making the deers I would get started straight away and set the benchmark - have a look at my photo of the finished project : )

29 Jul, 2009

I think we should have a cheats box fines going to a worthy cause
Like me ( got that in before the rest of you.chipped in)!

Sid if you use the chair legs make sure its strong you may have to have your christmas dinner sat on it.
