Reindeer Embroidery - FINISHED!

Yay! I'm super excited because I finished my reindeer embroidery wall hangings. I started these back in September I think with my very first embroidery patterns...the reindeer.

You can find the info on the embroidery patterns from my previous post HERE.

I did a simple quilting pattern around the perimeter of the wall hangings because I didn't want to distract from the embroidery. Then I bound each with a combo of lime green fabrics. I'm one of those crazy people who loves to hand sew my bindings. And then I added two grommets at the top of each wall hanging to help hang them.

The plan is to hang these in the staircase of my new house next Christmas season. I'm sure we'll actually be in the house by then. lol (oh that kind of hurts to even joke like that!)

Here they are on my design wall with a couple of my swoon blocks...boy those swoon blocks are huge!

Each one is a fun time! And gosh darn if it isn't just fun to have them finished! ;)

  1. I love your reindeer and I really like the idea of making three separate wall hangings.... may have to steal that idea LOL.

  2. They look just wonderful! I just can't decide on a fave, but Dancer is surely right near the top. :)

    I'm so happy I got the patterns - I have something to look for next fall.

  3. It's amazing that you got them all done, especially when the Christmas fervor is done. I love the colors you used with them, kin of modern.

  8. SO cute! I don't think I'd be able to put them away until next Christmas. Come to think of it, my Christmas quilt is still on the couch. Hmm...

    (I'm with you on hand-sewing bindings!)

  10. Love those reindeer, Angela! They're just adorable, especially how you finished them. Isn't it exciting to think about hanging them in your new home? I'm so very happy for you, perhaps because I too am looking forward to doing the same thing, moving into a new house. Just have to sell THIS one first. Ha! I know I'm being overly optimistic because I want to move by the end of April, but it's the only way to get through the drudgery of sorting and paring down 23 years worth of stuff. Have a great time moving and settling into your new house.

  13. Those are adorable! It will feel great when Christmas rolls around and they're already done and ready to hang! PS, I'm a weirdo with ya, hand sewing the binding is actually my favorite part.

  14. They look great! I have this pattern and intend to stitch it during our Aussie winter! I'm with you- I love hand stitching my bindings. I call it the exclamation mark at the end sentence!!!!

  15. These look totally magnificant! I have enjoyed seeing them progress and just love the scrappy borders and lime green binding!!

  16. These are adorable! Glad to know I am not the only one who is compelled to hand stitch all the bindings! But really, what's so wrong with it? ;)

  17. Congrats! They look wonderful! I'm progressing with mine - I started in mid-January with the idea of doing one a week and I'm still on schedule. I couldn't decide what to do with Blitzen's beer mug so I'm glad I could take a peek at yours. :) I'll finish him up this weekend.

    1. That was definitely one of the harder things for me to figure out too. It was the only time I added a fourth color to my embroidery. I just had to do the frothy white bubbles!

  18. Your reindeer wall hangings are great. What a neat idea to make three instead of one big one. They look great now and they will be beautiful on the wall of your new house this Christmas. Your Swoon blocks are gorgeous as well.

  19. I agree that there is nothing quite like the feeling of being finished 10 months early for Christmas!! They are super cute Angela.
