Red House Cross Stitch

Look what I've been up to! I've finished another project from the New Year Craft Resolution list so that's 4 finished projects!  In all honesty, the finished projects were close to completion, but having the list has made me more focused and motivated. 

Since we've had unbearably hot weather (with temperatures reaching up to 45*C), the most low impact craft activity I can do is cross stitch.  This pattern is from Rico Designs' Woodland Walks (see my other project here) and I've crossed stitched it on a aida panel tea towel (I bought 6 of these tea towels last year ...only 4 to go!).

Not that I have anything against deciduous trees, but the left tree in the pattern looked a little scrawny so I stitched a full evergreen tree to signify abundance instead (ok I'm a little superstitious even for a tea towel design).  The house reminds me of a McMansion near by with bright red bricks which I had dubbed "The Lego House" when I was a kid ... come to think of it, I still refer to it by this name!
