Winter is Coming

I’ve been working like crazy on socks for other people, but I have found a little bit of time to work on Winter Keep by Teresa Wentzler.

It is so close to being done! All it needs is the beads. This was my WIPocalypse project for this month, and I’m declaring it done!!

Here are the two pieces together. Isn’t it interesting how two designers can take exactly the same subject and produce designs that look so different. I think that anyone familiar with Teresa Wentzler and Jennifer Aikman-Smith’s designs would be able to pick out who designed which piece.

My plan is to finish this up as a needlebook. That means miles of nun stitch. So, I’m sure you can guess that is will probably be a while until I get to it. I’ll add the beads after I finish the nun stitch.

So, I’m making good progress on stitching up all my TW designs. I think it might be a lifetime of work though, since I’ve managed to collect all of them but two.


Finally, like to say thank you for all the recommendations for [amazon_link id=”0143119680″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]A Discovery of Witches[/amazon_link]. My mom also suggested it as a book I may enjoy. So, I cracked it open (actually, loaded it up on my Kobo) the other day and so far so good! (I’m also reading [amazon_link id=”0307352145″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Quiet[/amazon_link] by Susan Cain, [amazon_link id=”0061694940″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Anathem[/amazon_link] by Neil Stevenson, and [amazon_link id=”0812978846″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Absolute Monarchs: A History of the Papacy[/amazon_link] by John Julius Norwich.)

    That is so pretty! They’re both pretty, and look great together. Congrats on getting them stitched – which is something I should do too, as I have them both 🙂
