They actually look more like deer in the photograph than they did while I was stitching them, and I'm sure they'll be even clearer once I get the space around them filled in and do the back-stitching.
Out in the real world, the deer are suddenly everywhere. My oldest son was out yelling for the barn cat yesterday and apparently two of them were standing in the yard looking at him like he'd lost his mind. We drove down to Safeway for some ice cream and one was running across the cross walk. I know we live in the country and that's where the deer are, but they're usually not on main street dodging heavy traffic.
You'd think that with all of the cougar sightings in town -- and all of the talk about how they're going to eat our pets and children -- that there wouldn't be any deer left.
