Merry Christmas Friends

Merry Christmas dear friends. This year I decorated my Christmas tree pink; I think that I wanted simplicity and softness in my decoration. My 10 year old boy helped me to decorate, and he displayed all my village collection. He's so excited for Christmas.

The red pickup truck with the Christmas tree actually is a telephone that I bought in a flea market for $2.00 The only thing I don't like about the phone is that when it rings I think it's the smoke alarm.
 I made some paper houses. I found the patterns at Martha Stewart's web site.

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas full of unforgettable  moments, and a happy New Year

Plaid Deer Head Wall Mount

After browsing on line I found a plaid deer head that Target was selling; but the item is currently unavailable. I found this deer head pattern Here I made some changes on the pattern. I really liked how it turned out.

 like you can see in the picture, I made some changes on the pattern. I just added 1" more around the line of the middle of head pattern. 

 I made my antler pattern  longer.
And placed a piece of cardboard on the back of the deer to mount it better on the wall.
The tutorial on the page where I found the pattern is really helpful on the sewing part, but I found out in the process of making this project that inserting wire in the antler helped shape the antler. I inserted 2 wooden sticks of about 10" in length inside the head of the antler to help the antler remain strait. It's a good idea to insert the wooden sticks when you are  stuffing the deer head.

Optimism is the faith 
that leads to achievement. 
Nothing can be done without hope 
and confidence. 
~Helen Keller~
I want to wish you a wonderful day full of love, peace, and unforgettable moments.
