I love looking for antique designs and motifs that I can give a modern twist. This deer was originally part of a cross stitch hunting scene. I have liberated it and stitched it in a festive shade of red on natural linen. You can of course use any colours of thread and fabric you like; you could even add a touch of sparkle with some metallic thread.
