October ornament for 2009 Ornament Challenge

Christmas Eve Deer
The Prairie Schooler
November issue The Gift of Stitching
32ct Lambswool, DMC fibers
I knew I would stitch this ornament as soon as I saw it in TGOS. The pattern calls for white moon and snowflakes. However, Barbara of Mainely Stitches, made some color changes on the one she stitched that I really liked. So, I used her idea. I think mine turned out pretty well. This is my October ornament for the challenge. November is almost done, so I'm a gonna make it.
Have a great Sunday. I am in deep mourning this morning. My O-State Cowboys got stomped by the Sooner Schooner.

Lovely finish, this design was the one I wanted to stitch straight away from the November issue of TGOS, but I'm not organised enough to have made a start yet. Yours looks great though!

What a fun one, I like the color changes you made. Great job on the finishing too, the beading around the edge is lovely.

Very cute finish! I love this and a few other designs from the GOS magazine, but Christmas is so close and so little time.
