This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The Missal designed from a painting by John William Waterhouse shows a young woman kneeling as she reads from her missal (text from a Catholic mass). Her long thick braid hangs at full length down her back and her dress flows around her. The shutters of the window are opened to let the breeze circulate around the room. Through the window we can see a fruit tree in the garden which symbolizes fertility. A vase of flowers is positioned artfully off to the side representing a thing of beauty. 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.
