Two girls (lifted from an antique book cover) embroidering what appear to be tide pools in which the Summer sky is reflected. The embroidery project may never get finished, so I thought I would use a bit of it here.
On the original book cover, the girls are listening as a woman reads them a story. Presumably what they are sewing on to the cloth on which the woman is sitting is the story she is reading. At least, I like to think so.
