Augusta Sewing Before a Window

Augusta Sewing Before a Window.
Mary Cassatt. 1922.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York (from the Collection of James Stillman, Gift of Dr. Ernest G. Stillman).
So, there is isn't any discernible thimble in this painting. The point of my posting it here is not that it may or may not feature a thimble, but that it is one of several free e-cards one can send courtesy of Lion Brand Yarn. Granted, the vast majority of the e-cards depict knitting and crocheting, but they are all lovely, free e-cards with great paintings and illustrations of (mostly) women crafting with their hands. They also have free e-cards with "The Art of Lion Brand," which have more whimsical depictions of yarn crafts.
