A trend seems to be for getting away from the paper and packaged pattern and instead, downloading instantly a new pattern from the net. I've been seeing more and more designers going this way. A place to see many patterns of this type is Pattern Spot. They are well organized by designer or type of pattern and offer many choices all in one place. They also have a nice selection of freebies to look over while you are there too.
Since its deer hunting season, I thought it might be fun to look at some "deer" patterns. One is called Deer Valley. It has no deer as far as I can tell but it's really pretty.
Another is for an applique pattern for white tail deer at Four Twin Sisters.
The Troy Corporation has a Granola Girl pattern for deer. Its called Tracking White Tail Deer and certainly fits with this season.
Here is a blog with a lovely deer wallhanging. I think you'll enjoy it. Have a great weekend. Diana
