I was inspired to embroider a reindeer with fancy curling antlers after seeing a similar one on a Christmas serviette last Christmas.
I used a magic chain stitch on the bottom right which looks tricky but is actually so easy to do. I remembered some little polka dot buttons that I bought while on holiday last year and added them to the top on the chain stitch.

I took a photo of the block before it was beaded. The beaded block at the top of the post definitely looks better. Beading adds life and sparkle and a touch of light.
