Staggeringly Beautiful

Should I apologise for that title, oops, I couldn't resist it!

I am very excited about this though


I do rather like stag heads, and had my beady eye on a lovely wooden one for the conservatory last year, but was unfortunately vetoed by my hubby as he really doesn't like them.

Then he saw this little one, actually a Christmas decoration, and swooped it up for me. I love it and he sits proudly above my door so every time I lift my head up I see him and smile, even Andy is growing to like him!



I've been busy crocheting a new wreath for Christmas. A nice simple one with just a bit of Christmas ribbon.



I should be making more for Christmas, I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by how many things I should be doing. I have started a hat, but I'm not sure yet if I'm going to like it, have to see how it goes.




I did have a moment of extravagance the other day... it was a special offer, end of line. There wasn't much left and it looked a bit lonely, so home with me it came.




Not sure yet what it's purpose will be


Something warm and cosy.

Take care

  1. Your stag looks great Cheryl, I wonder if you can get away with leaving him up all year round! My giveaway prize arrived today, thank you! I will show pics on my blog tomorrow. xx

  2. Hello Cheryl
    Many thanks for your comments on my last post. :-) I do that....buy yarn and I don't what it's for but cannot resist an offer....it always gets used though.
    Now if you had said to me I have a stag's head above my door I might just raise my eyebrows a little .....I'm not keen on animal heads at all but on seeing it I'd say that is so different and really stands out! I very much like the wreath....not too ornate...nice! Did you use a pattern?

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  6. I think I prefer your lovely stags head to a wooden one. I havent done anything for christmas yet either, to be honest I havent really thought much about it. It will be here before we know it though.

  8. A great title, deer. Groan! I think your stags head is much nicer than a wooden one, and I'm loving the wreath, sometimes less is more.

  11. I really like your 'understated' wreath Cheryl - very sweet, and that new yarn is very interesting with all its beautiful colours - the stag's head? I'm not sure on that one, but I do like your post title! I hope your weekend is going well. Hugs, Joy x

  12. Hi Cheryl. Before I comment I just wanted to check you got my email?? I have a complete love for stag heads and I managed to get one quite a few years back, and now I would LOVE another. I love your pretty white one and I'm sure it is making you smile, I know it would me. I'm sharing the overwhelmed feeling for Christmas makes with you as really I haven't started as I'm so focused in this village gifts night in three weeks. I suspect December is going to be busy. Loving the look if all that yarn!!! Xoxoxo

  13. Hi Cheryl, your christmas wreath is so pretty. What yarn did you use? It looks a little bit metallic, I really like it! Lovely yarn too....I'm always buying yarn with no idea as to what I'll use it for :) xoxox

  19. I love the Stags head. I've seen them made out of paper mâché and wonder if they couldn't be painted to look like that! I just made a hat for my Mom that I didn't like until I finished it. Then I liked it a lot. So hang in there.
