This cross stitch design by Lesley Teare is full of simplicity and natural charm. There is a single tiny touch of red, a bead for the nose of the reindeer, and the rest is only stitched in white on a natural linen fabric background. You can substitute a French Knot or cross stitch for the bead if desired.
The design is available as a printed hardcopy pattern.
