Physical Description

A rectangular cream cloth with a large red centred cross which is superimposed on a blue circle within a blue rectangle. The outlines of the three shapes are worked in chain stitch with cotton thread. Three of the quarter circles created by the cross contain blue and brown signatures worked in stem stitch, the fourth is void. The signatures radiate out from the centre and follow the curve of the circle. Other signatures in blue and red, also worked in stem stitch, extend outwards from each corner of the rectangle in a feather or arrowhead formation. A few signatures are worked along the outside edge of the rectangle.
