This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Fair Rosamund designed from a painting by John William Waterhouse shows Rosamund Clifford kneeling by the window searching for any sight of her lover, King Henry II who is already married to Queen Eleanor. Queen Eleanor sees Rosamund as a rival and is poised to murder her. Rosamund continues to look out the window desperately searching for King Henry and does not see the queen who is hiding behind burgundy drapes. In this scene, adultery is treated in a way that paints the mistress in a more favorable light than so the Queen. 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.
