All Through the Night

Petite on Silk Gauze

All Through the Night

Ar hyd y nos  (or In stiller nacht) is the familiar lullaby set to a traditional Welsh melody and inspiration for this design. I've used portions of the refrain and one verse in this elegant design.

The larger version on linen is ideal for a birth remembrance; consider tucking the pertinent details into one of the border sections, using it as a cartouche.
