I loved stitching this little deer surrounded by a garland of berries and foliage. Although I had Christmas in mind when working him, he would be a great year-round make too.
This hoop does make me giggle. I took it away on holiday, and began stitching away the long hot afternoons – until my work blew away and had to be recovered when found floating face-down in the pool! Not very Christmassy I know, but I think it turned out fine in the end!
