This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder designed from a painting by John William Godward shows a woman sitting on the steps near a patio wall thinking about and longing to see that special person in her life. They have been apart for awhile, and she is missing him. She can feel the gentle breeze off from the lake beyond rouse her feelings of longing. Hopefully they will be reunited soon. 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.
