Der Ring des Nibelungen

I've loved the Ring Cycle since I was 14. That was why I first explored Tolkien as I knew his work was based on the same myths.

When I was 15 or 16 we were allowed to create a project of our own choosing in school needlework class and I chose to create this. I'm not good at sewing or embroidery so am surprised I ever managed the project! I'd no idea where it was and was pleased to find it again today after having a clear-out.

My stories "Shadow and Thought", "Web of Treason" and "A Time to Reap" are heavily influenced by Wagner's operas too. He was an unpleasant man but his characters have a Shakespearian depth and the music describes emotions like no other.
