My third 2011 finish!

There are few designs that I know I want to do more than once, and this one is surely one of those. This is JBW's French Country V Reindeer done on 18 ct white aida with Victorian Motto Sampler Thread Pals Cherry Chill. I really liked working with this floss, and you get so much in each hank, you feel like you can do tons of things with it. I know I only used a tiny portion of the hank for this whole project! This is for a friend, so I am going to have to make another one of these for myself. I am not sure yet how I am going to finish this, but I am leaning towards a pinkeep or a mini-cube.

I am getting ready to kit up my snowman ornament that I was supposed to be doing instead of this reindeer, but I still have hope that I can finish the snowman this month. Wish me luck.

Thank you all so much for the positive comments you left about my Santa Clothes oops. They really made me feel much better about it. Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!

Hi Beth,

The Reindeer is lovely. I really think it turned out terrific. That is wonderful floss isn't it? I will have to do this one now too. It is never to early to start next years ornaments!
