Doe a deer, a reindeer -- gender non specific

This deer nearly drove me crazy, but now that it is finished, I love it. It stands on its own, but only if you successfully stuff the legs properly, and then attach them properly on the body. Being a Tilda pattern, the location for the legs is not marked on the body pattern piece. I have no idea why -- not telling us doesn't make it easier to pull something like this off -- just saying. One is largely left to one's own devices.
For me, this means pinning, repinning, pinning again -- and not in the fun Pintrest way. More like in the,"Why won't this flippin' deer stand on its own?" kind of way..
It was too wet today to go and get some cuttings from our shrubs to make antlers, but I will add them when conditions dry out enough.
I have been working on a number of Christmas gifts this week, so I can't post photos. However, once they are given, I will post pictures.
Hope everyone is enjoying these days leading up to Christmas!


  1. It's a gorgeous girl - if it were a boy, that pretty pink flower would be a can of BEER, a slice of pizza, or a fart machine!

  2. oh wow, you made that?? that's amazing!

  3. Your deer is gorgeous, you have made a fantastic job of it!

  4. So cute! It will make a wonderful addition to your Christmas decor.

  5. Hi Nancy - happy new year! Your Tilda reindeer came out great, despite the frustrations it gave you. Glad to see also that you got to visit New York & wonderful JoAnn's store! I don't go there without a coupon in hand. I'm happy you saved some money on your supplies - much needed for all that awesome crafting you do.
