Stag Party ~

 
 
Lori of Homespun Prims designed this stag pattern.  I don't think she'll mind if I share her version.  You can purchase the pattern here
 
 
I really appreciate that she offers paper patterns and the buyer can enlarge to the size desired.  She also offers cross stitch and punch needle patterns.  This is one talented hooker lady.
 
Here are the wools I chose for the stag.  The two wools on the top right are from Rebecca Erb's latest mailer.  Oh, they are wonderful wools and hook like butter.  
 

These are the wools chosen for the antlers.  Light colored wools all put in the same dye pot using Emma Lou Lais' old putty recipe.


I've enlarged my pattern to about 22 1/2 x 28 1/2 which for me is a pretty big pattern.  It is hooking up quickly using a 9.5 cut.  I may have to set it aside soon to hook a couple Christmas presents. 

Of course the colors are not as bright in person :)
 
I hope everyone got out and voted today.  I was pleasantly surprised at the number of voters who turned out for mid-term elections.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

I wish I could do the large cuts, but too hard on my hands, an #8 is the largest I can go. Love the wools you picked out, that is going to be beautiful.
