This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Queen Eleanor and Fair Rosamund designed from a painting by Evelyn de Morgan shows a fictional depiction of Rosamund who was King Henry II's mistress being stalked and poisoned by his wife Queen Eleanor. The King supposedly built Fair Rosamund a house called Labyrinthus which was like a maze inside so that the queen would never be able to find her and he would be able to keep his mistress a secret; however, that was not to be the case. The Queen arrived with a host of evil spirits about her and found Rosamund by using thread through the maze-like interior and began feeding poison to Rosamund from a vial which proved to be fatal and she died. The scene is very colorful. 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.
