This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Reading the Legend designed from a painting by Lily Martin Spencer shows a young woman and her lover sitting below castle ruins, and as he is reading a romantic novel to her, she stares longingly at the ruins of the castle which is actually said to be Blarney Castle that had burned.  The tall structure looms in the background slightly charred on the frontal view.  It is a fine day and the dog with them doesn't seem to mind being a listener to the litany of prose and talk of love.  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.
