And yet another reindeer

One more to go. This one is for an exchange so I still need to make myself one. I used a different dye lot of 30 ct Abecedarian.

Witch Pumpkin by With Thy Needle Designs

Another wonderful design from Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle Designs. She has a wonderful online shop Country Stitches or you can get your local needlework shop to order for you.

I just love her designs and they always please me when I am finished. She gives just great directions.
As you can see my stitching is awkward under the band. I was going to redo it but the needle left holes. Better to draw a faint line to cross evenly. I did the back and it looks alot better but it is a primitive design right :)
I picked up the fabric & flowers at Hobby Lobby. These seemed to give it a Fall look. I am hanging it up and leaving it even tho it has a little witch on it. I am German and have a kitchen witch for good luck and this will be her little ditty bag.
