Yaayyy! Another cross stitch finish! Lots and lots of trees but it finished up lovely.
This a freebie pattern by Eszter of e-subrosa.blogspot.com.and you can find it HERE.
I kept it traditional with green and red. It is stitched on white 32ct linen.

 All those trees! I had to do quite a bit of frogging but well worth it!

Here is our part time cat, Mitzi who was enjoying the warm sun yesterday. She was waiting for me and meowing her welcome!

But overnight the weather changed and we even had a dusting of snow and freezing conditions. The snow did melt away by lunch.

I went for a walk in the woods yesterday as it was so nice but only had my phone camera so I snapped a few pics as I enjoyed the autumn day.
 The lake with the village church rising like a spike over the trees.


 This old tree had fallen years ago and I wanted to see all the names carved into it with my big shadow looming seemed fun and then I looked at it a bit more and was reminded of the burning bush just beyond the fallen tree... God's creation is beautiful!
Thanks everyone for all your comments. You all cheer me on and keep me going so thank you for stopping by.

Hope you all have a great week and stay safe and warm!
