This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Afternoon Pastime by Edward John Cobbett shows a mother and her baby daughter standing in the doorway watching her eldest daughter as she knits.  Perhaps this is an article of clothing for her younger baby sister.  The cottage is festooned with red brick, diamond paned windows and hollyhocks are growing in front of the windows.  No blended colors are used in our patterns.  We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.  Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
