In a cozy interior two quite elegantly dressed young ladies join their grandmother for a pleasant afternoon time - one of the girls, wearing a grand chapeau, knits as her grandmother does , the other reads antimatedly from the book she is holding - grandmother's cat stares out directly at the viewer - sewing basket with scissors in foreground.
