Pairs of Deers in Long & Short

Monsoon season arrived. Sweaters and shawls started creeping out of the ward robes. To deviate a bit from floral designs I thought adding some fauna. With this in mind I tried Long& short stitch to shape up a pair of deers in a plain shawl. Here I used two strands of Anchor cotton thread. This has come up to my expectation. This I intend to gift it to my hubby. I developed my little knowledge in L&S by visiting Lakshmi's blog http://sadalas.blogspot.com/. Thank you Lakshmi! How is it? Leave your comments and suggestions, which will motivate me further.
