Christmas Ideas

Design - "Cranberry Deer Pinkeep"
Designer - Beehive Needlework
Fabric - 32 count Flax Belfast linen
Fibers - DMC - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 2 December 2011
Completed - 4 December 2011

I stitched this a few years ago.  It was sooth to stitch using just one color of floss.

I try to go to Hiron's, a local variety store at least once during the Christmas season.   

I enjoy looking at all the displays. 

And there are a dozen or so differently themed decorated trees. 

Retro-feeling Santa stuff

Floofy feathery pastel tree.

Further Santa stuff.

A study in green.

Love the reindeer. 

And this retro-looking Christmas tree.
It almost leaped into my shopping basket!

I really love this reindeer finish, Beth. I stitched it twice and gave them both away--time to do one for myself :) You certainly have some lovely places to shop out your way!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas--hope the kitties get lots of catnip in their stockings :)

The reindeer finish is so pretty. I enjoy one color stitching occasionally. What a fun store. My wallet would have suffered!

Lovely, your Cranberry Deer. And nice pictures from your local variety store.
