This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Gather Ye Rosebuds designed from a painting by John William Waterhouse shows a woman holding a bowl of cut roses. As she gazes at the flowers, she notices one is standing straight while the other is already wilting. She is reflecting on how quickly time passes and one day the flower looks healthy and upright, while in just a day's time the flower can wilt, grow old and die. She has become aware of the fragility of life. Notice the gold lame bands on her arms and the detail in her dressing gown. There is a natural blush in her cheeks, and her face and gaze are slightly tilted upwards. This is a beautiful rendering done in cross stitch and is perfect for all flower lovers. 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.
