This Irish counted cross stitch pattern entitled Colleen designed by Tracey Marvel Kramer shows a portrait of an Irish woman named Colleen.  Interestingly enough, the name in Ireland means "girl" and is derived from the Old Irish word "caile" which means "woman" or "countrywoman."  It's a generic name used in Ireland to refer to a "girl" or "woman."  The image that is attached to the name "Colleen" is sometimes an Irish woman with flaming red hair and blue eyes; however, the true identity would be a woman with dark hair, fair skin and blue eyes.  Although the name is used in Ireland as a generic word, it rarely is used in Ireland to name a girl baby but instead is used in countries like Australia, Great Britain and the United States.  Colleen in this scene is dressed in a teal dress trimmed with white ruffles and a matching hat with flowers.  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.
