It's a reindeer!

I finished up Quaker Reindeer from The Workbasket today. I used the recommended 35 count R&R iced cappuccino linen. I really liked using the 35 count and I plan on using it again. I don't really like the dye lot of the Waterlilies color I received - there is a bit more purple in it than I would have preferred.

So far I have completed eight ornaments - I have a full day of finishing ahead of me that's for sure!

I finally received in the mail today my copy of Moonlit Garden. Below are the results of the floss toss I did today. All are Silkweavers linens - from top to bottom: Antique Gold, Golden Wings and Heritage. My favorite so far is the first one Antique Gold with Gold Wings a very close second. Any opinions?

Your reindeer is adorable! I like the middle fabric for Moonlit Garden the best :-)

Great finish Margie! I have Copper Waterlilies in my stash but it's predominantly grey, so I think I'm going to go with something else entirely.

I think the Antique Gold is my favourite!
