Oh Deer!

Happy Friday, friends! I didn't think that I would even manage a post this week as I've hardly had time to blink never mind blog! I'm sharing with Amy at Love made my Home and Five on Friday.

With Christmas  well and truly in our sights, I've been working on some Christmas items, reindeer being amongst my favourite patterns, so when I grabbed a few minutes I've been doing some cross stitch deer!

1. this is from a free pattern I found on Pinterest.  Simple but soon hard to stitch on 32t linen - I nearly gave up but it was too sweet not to finish it! Love how the deer gazes at the star!

2. This was easier on Aida another freebie from Pinterest  Grilles De Marise.
Red and white is a classic combination!

3. I decided to frame this one in a simple white frame which will go well with my newly decorated living room

4. This is an idea for a little pouch rather than another pinkeep. I copied a deer shape from free google images and transferred it to some ticking. Just love the leaping deer!

5. Lastly this deer is a special one as it was the first primitive deer I owned thanks to Wendy of Raavenwood Whimzies as I won her giveaway several years ago

 He is one handsome fella!

Thanks so much for visiting and hope to hear from you and return the favour!

Check out more at Amy's Five on Friday!

Enjoy the weekend!

  5. Christine..
    Your deer are all little dears! Truly... Your handwork is so charming. I'm so envious. I don't have the patience for that kind of work! I have tried but I always end up with too many mistakes. And you do such a nice job.
    Thank you for sharing and have a lovely weekend..

  6. Such a beautiful five. They are all works of art, you are certainly a very talented lady. Take care.

  7. Lovely deers !!!!

  8. Love all your different deer. I give you a lot of credit, I have tried stitching on that linen and it is just too hard for me and now that I am older it is even harder for me to see, I have been sticking to 14 count aida anymore. what a cute little guy you won too!

  9. Love it!! Great work Christine!! I LOVE that pillow with the star (I bet it was difficult). You're putting me in the holiday mood!! ;) I bet all of the deer things will look so nice in your home.
    Blessings for your week ahead. Xo
