The Tree Of Magic

 Hello, Dear Ones! I hope today finds you all well. I wanted to show you another cross stitch piece that I've finished. It's Fall today and we think of pretty fall leaves and colors so I think little little piece fits the bill for fall!

This sweet little piece is called "The Tree Of Magic" by Barbara Ana Designs. I lean more to a primitive style of cross stitch. If I want something realistic I guess I'll just take a picture. I can literally get lost looking at all of the little vignettes on the tree branches.
Starting at the top - look! There goes a little mousie and I'm so glad he's left that sweet little house! You know he was looking for some cheese.
Each branch seems to have a little house or garden. Look at all of the sweet little animals too.
Oh, don't be scared as I see a spider! I think it's okay because I spy a rooster and I'm sure he'll take care of that ole spider. Butterflies and flowers. Just so sweet.
There are lots of mushrooms and flowers and houses and birds and butterflies and animals and that ole spider. Uh Oh! Dear Ones I see a spot that missed! You see the little yellow house where the little white dog is guarding? Well, schooch over a little bit where those pink stemmed flowers are and there is white where I didn't finish! Guess what? It's done and hanging on the wall. I'm not gonna fix it. Ain't gonna happen. Do I care? Naaaaaahhhh! Just keeping it real, Dear Ones.
I try to put my initials on my pieces lately with the year. The little cross by the year is to remind me that I stitched this during Covid time.
 
Hope you've enjoyed seeing my sweet little piece. Actually it's not little, it's about 12 inches high and about 9 inches wide. This took me a little while to do but I enjoyed every stitch.
 
I'll be joining the party Tuesday Turn About Party
 
And as always, be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)  

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
 
Strange Magic

You're sailing softly through the sun
In a broken stone age dawn
You fly so high
I get a strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Got a strange magic
You're walking meadows in my mind
Making waves across my time
Oh no, oh no
I get a strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Oh, I'm never gonna be the same again
Now I've seen the way it's got to end
Sweet dream, sweet dream
Strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Got a strange magic
It's magic, it's magic, it's magic
Strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Strange magic
You know I got a strange magic
Yeah I got a strange magic
Strange magic

  2. This is so sweet. No one would ever notice those few missing little stitches. I love cross stitch I've just gotten out of the habit. I need to get started, it was really enjoyable to see them come together!
