Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!

The reindeer are now all finished. Just few stars, a smaller than charted moon (without the facial features), and the Merry Christmas message to stitch. Yay! Tomorrow I'll get my charts out to decide on an alphabet for the message. Then the next decision will be the finishing. I had originally planned to mount it on a padded board (like a very large ornament), but now I'm drawn towards having it custom framed, as I usually do with my annual Christmas projects. Time will tell ... I'll be trying to make a decision tomorrow when I'm walking up and down the pool. It's good to have something to focus my mind on when I'm walking in the pool - it helps to make the hour go faster.

It looks great! If you hadn't mentioned it before I'd have never known that it originally had only 6 reindeer. You did a great job adding them in.

Looking good, this definitely deserves a custom framing. The two additional reindeer look to be part of the design, you have done a terrific job of blending them in to the team.
I hope Maddie is feeling better and enjoying the cooler weather.

Maddie is a different girl now that it's cooler and we've had some rain. She's back to her old self!
