This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The Girlhood of Mary Virgin designed from a painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti portrays Mary as a young girl stitching or performing embroidery on a cloth that is on a stand.  I doubt the real Mary was doing this, but this is the artists personal view.  Along side of Mary is an older woman who is teaching Mary the art of stitchery while a small angel with rose-colored wings is close by observing the lesson.  Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
