Physical Description

A square ecru linen cloth with ten scalloped edges per side finished with pink buttonhole stitch edging. A centred diamond contains the title text "Woodville January 1904" which is stem stitched with pink cotton thread. The diamond lozenge is defined by two close rows of stem stitch with small scallops all around its outer row. Signatures are scattered over the entire cloth, radiating out from the centre. They have been worked in a mixture of stem stitch and chain stitch in pink cotton thread. The cloth is mounted in a frame.
