Quaker Reindeer

Here is my January ornament - Quaker Reindeer by The Workbasket which featured in the 2006 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue. He's not quite as charted, I saw another Reindeer stitched like this on the Legacy Embroiderer's Guild Bulletin board and decided to copy. The Quaker medallion is stitched with Gentle Arts Sampler Threads in Blue Spruce and Cranberry. I used the called for Copper Waterlillies for his body.
I had a look on the Workbasket site yesterday and they are planning on releasing a Quaker Cat and Mouse at the Nashville show.
