Not long ago I had a very vivid dream about a multi-colored deer. There were really cool vintage embroidered linens hanging like room dividers in this old house, and I guess it was supposed to be my grandmas house (the one that died when I was 5). We were going to inherit the house, and I was so excited about all the old linens. Anyway, there was this little deer with beautiful colored spots on her fur.
I've thought about it a lot, and then I saw this on the front page of etsy yesterday, and decided I should buy it:
cornflakegirl is the seller (I start humming that tori amos song everytime I think of her username), and she is Asian, and I told her about the dream. She said it was a good omen in Chinese culture to dream of a multi-colored deer. How odd that it's dreamt of enough to actually mean something. So I google 'deer dream' and it talked about how deer are graceful and can stand for the feminine aspect of ourselves. It said if you dream of a black deer, it might mean you are trying to stifle a part of your femininity, so I guess I'm letting mine flow for sure! Must be all the colorful things I've been sewing lately :)
She also makes these amazing custom dogs that look exactly like the live dog!
Here's a little creature made with vintage fabric:
