This vintage counted cross stitch pattern entitled Insufferable Men shows a woman who is fed up with the advances of would-be suitors who are vying for her attention lately and she just wants a short break from it all. She is content in having some alone time to read her favorite book and dream about what could be until she can face the expectations placed on her by society of looking for a suitor to marry and start a new life. Back then, a woman did not have much choice in pursuing a career and had to depend on a man's fortune. Today things have changed for the better and women are able to have their own careers independently. 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.
