good tidings

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
— John Muir (1838–1914)

A second version of this design, right on the heels of no. 68 — a wrapped band variation, with the threads crossing the obi and gathered/bundled as the obi is stitched.

Thread wrap in silvery-brown (driftwood); S4 division (no guidelines); embroidery in browns, greens, and gold. The quote above by John Muir is in the bell box along with 9 brass rings. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.26 inches / 8.3 cm. Completed 29 November 2011 (no. 070).
