Reindeer finish

I've been doing a bit of finishing here and there. My Holly Reindeer looks quite spiffy made up as a pillow ornament, doesn't she? I used the red swirl fabric for the back and stuffed lightly with fibrefill. Aren't those swirls perfect for antlers like that? A rustic bow of jute made the hanger.

Design ~ Holly Reindeer
Designer ~ Me! Daffycat Designs
Fabric ~ 28 count tea-dyed scrap
Fiber ~ DMC

My Uncle Jack was down this month visiting from Nova Scotia. We were able to go out for a late lunch with him and my parents. Holly Reindeer went home with my uncle. I received a nice thank you note from my Aunt Ruth in return!

This design is still available as a freebie. See this post here. Or click on the cat in my sidebar to see the rest of my free designs.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
