Winter Reindeer - WIP

Hello again everyone.  I haven't made any cards today, I have been going through my papers to find what will go with the pictures I have stitched for Mother's Day.  I hope to have these ready to share with you at the end of next week.

In the meantime I thought I would show you my Work In Progress.

It's a Gold Collection kit called Winter Reindeer which I bought at the NEC in November 2013.  I started it last summer but put it down for quite some time while I made Christmas cards. My aim is to get it finished for this Christmas and make it into a cushion as it is a nice square shape.  I haven't done any back stitch on it yet or any stitches using the gold metallic thread.  I find the metallic thread quite difficult to stitch with so I'm putting it off!  This is what it will look like when it's done.

Thanks for visiting my blog, please leave me a comment to let me know what you think and come again soon.


  1. Beautiful stitching Claire. I'm sure you can have it finished for Christmas. Do you use Thread Heaven for your metallics? I find it helps quite a lot, but I hate doing them too!

  2. This is a lovely design. The colours are wonderful.

  3. Excellent, can't wait to see this finished. Lisa x
