And here it is, kids. My magnum opus (so far): Teresa Wentzler’s “Father Winter.”
This was a stitching marathon. It’s a large design, with whitework specialty stitching and beading, and a complicated holly border around the central figure. I worked on this piece from July 2010 to February 2012, although not continuously; I laid it aside for several weeks at a time when life got in the way.
Here are some closer looks at the details:
It really is a beautiful piece, and I am happy with the result. My next project is Joan Elliott’s “The Musician.” Happy stitching!
