This vintage counted cross stitch pattern entitled A Cold Dreary Night shows a young woman out on a cold winter night; the wind is blowing, and she is are hoping to get to their destination quickly to be out of the cold. This scene is done in Van Gogh style in various shades of blue striping for a textured effect which adds further interest to the scene. The golden glow of the light seen from the windows brings warmth and reflects onto the water and onto the young woman's clothing and backpack creating sparks of light throughout the night. 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.
