This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Among the Ruins designed from a painting by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema shows a scene by the sea where a woman is parting the leaves of tall iris flowers to get to the broken pieces on the ground of something that once was useful and precious.  Perhaps she has in mind to try to mend or salvage the pieces of the ruins to bring life back into them.  The color of the ocean is a beautiful shade of blue and makes us almost be able to feel the breeze coming off the water.  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.
