Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
— Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
I had a lot of fun with no. 179 and wanted to repeat the design in different colors. Four 4-point layered kiku herringbone stars with staggered points at each pole.
Thread wrap in silvery lilac; S16 division in perle #8. Embroidery in 4 shades of purples & violets. The quote by Tennyson is in the bell box along with brass rings that make a quiet traditional rattle. Circumference: 11.875 inches / 30 cm; diameter: 3.78 inches / 9.5 cm. Completed 11 October 2012 (no. 184).
