CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana designs
Here's Autumn Tree, a cross stitch design by Barbara Ana, inspired by the atmospheric days of autumn, when one feels drawn to the woods to bask in the beautiful warm colors, smell the scent of mushrooms and falling leaves and listen for all the signs of life around us.
This pattern displays Barbara Ana's characteristic style and sense of humour. Squirrels run along the branches in search of the giant acorns, bright eyed crows are perched on the lookout for tiny treasures. And here and there are bright red mushroom, perfectly matching the polka dot dress.
The stitching is straightforward, the main branch structuring the piece and small decorative elements to add. It should be quite enjoyable and not take very long to complete.
Trees are one of Barbara Ana's favourite themes and there are several tree designs to pick from so you can stitch a series and vary your hanging depending on the season.
