This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled I am Half Sick of Shadows shows Lady of Shalott (from Tennyson's poem), who has been confined to a tower, taking a break from weaving a tapestry. She is frustrated in her captivity and can only view the world from the reflection in a mirror. She sees the world through the mirror and is confined to only weaving what she sees. If she breaks the rule and looks out the window at the world, she will be cursed. Her dress is a light crimson color and its color dominates the scene. 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.
