This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Cat's Cradle designed from a painting by Maria Matilda Brooks shows two girls engaged in a game that we would consider old-fashioned these days but not so during this time called Cat's Cradle that uses something as simple as a piece of string.  I don't want to date myself, but I myself also remember playing this game with my close school friends.  Notice how stylish the girls are dressed.  They evidently are from a status of wealth in order to be engaged in games of leisure while wearing such attire.  The younger of the two is staring right at us with dark penetrating eyes while the older girl is fully engaged in the game.  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.
