Magic Reindeer

I thought I posted a pic of my finished Magic Reindeer but I can't find the post so apparently it was a dream.  This is Magic Reindeer from Alessandra Adelaide Needlework.  I stitched it over one with one thread on 32 count Jobelan.  Even over one, it is a big design - more than 8" on each side.  It is almost all one color - except for his nose.  The beads called for Mill Hill Frosted beads but those seem a little big - however the bead color perfectly matches the floss. It was pretty easy stitching and I love the little ornaments and snowflakes hidden in his body.  I plan to finish it as a pillow with a border to match the thread color and maybe a bit of red trim.

I really enjoyed stitching this and I'll look to stitch more of her designs.  Maybe the Luck Banner with shamrocks or one of her Halloween designs.  Her Skull Banner and Spider Banner have been really popular.

Both of these designs as well as many more of her designs are available at  However, there are a number of her designs - especially trees and some more abstract designs that you'll have to order from European shops.  They are definitely worth checking out.

Happy Stitching!
