This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Dolce Far Niente designed from a painting by John William Godward shows a woman engaged in a luxury that many of us do not have which is carefree idleness. "Dolce Far Niente" literally means sweet doing nothing which is portrayed in this scene. The woman is lying on animal pelts next to an inviting pond while relaxing and enjoying her free time which is hers to do as she wishes. The pond is graced with water lilies, and various plants are slightly blowing in the wind from a gentle breeze. The scene creates a state of tranquility here. 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.
