I picked four colors of semi-solids from Dragonfly Lotus (no longer made) for this mini Bargello: Frosted Ash Beige,Frosted Carrot, Frosted Dandelion, and Frosted Burnt Orange. I arranged then from dark to light and just repeated the color sequence. The pattern is adapted from one in Bargello Sampler.
I’m putting it in a mahogany Mini Box from Sudberry. I think the rich wood tones will set it off nicely.
This pattern is named after one of my Favorite Saints, St. Nicholas Owen, a Jesuit lay brother, carpenter, and English martyr. He made many priest holes throughout England in the late 16th and early 17th Centuries. His final imprisonment was after the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 and he died under torture in 1606. You can read more about him in his Wikipedia article.
