A white haired woman sits in a large green armchair, a cane resting against her knee. She embroiders a red heart on fabric stretched in a hoop.
She wears a yellow bonnet, a yellow cloak over a red sweater over a yellow dress, a light blue and red gingham apron, and blue boots. Her cloak has different embroidered patches on it, including a banjo, an apple, a wheel, flowers, a snake, a spiderweb, and a mushroom. The top part of her dress features an embroidered unicorn. The upper part of her skirt has more embroidered creatures: an owl, a whale, a butterfly, and a goose. The lower part of her skirt has a pattern of red, green, and blue flowers.
Many pieces of embroidery hang on the wall behind her. A peach, a plum, and a pear are embroidered on an oval of red and yellow gingham. A bone, a pine-cone, and a cone-flower are embroidered on a striped square. There is a hoop of blue fabric with embroidery of eyes, a heart, and two blue boots. Another hoop features a ring with string tied around it. There is a square of green fabric with three angels. There is a hoop of yellow with an open book. A small green hoop has a picture of a thimble, a moon, and a star. Another hoop has a picture of a castle surrounded by clouds. A red rectangle of fabric has embroidery of two train engines and a railroad track. A large quilt hanging behind her also has different pictures visible in different squares: a boar, a leaping fish, two bumblebees, a shell and a starfish.
