This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Lady Reading by a Window designed from a painting by Thomas Benjamin Kennington shows a woman sitting by a window reading a book. The sunlight is filtering in with a gentle breeze, and the woman is enjoying her prized location by the window by reading a book of interest. You can practically feel the summer breeze wafting through the window in delicious puffs of air that has the ability to lull a person to sleep. The sharp contrast between the window and the wall behind the woman is very evident and leads to a dramatic effect. This would be a good pattern to stitch for bibliophiles (book lovers) alike. 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.
