This sepia counted cross stitch pattern entitled Preparing for the Festivities designed from a painting by Hans Zatzka shows a woman overseeing a little angel who is hanging garlands of flowers over an entrance. We may not know of the occasion for the festivities, but at least we know it's a special event as plenty of preparation is going into make it a success! 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.
