Needleartnut blog-stitched this piece.  Here is her first posting, so you can work forwards in time to see how this developed.  Another photograph of this piece is on the left.  It's the same piece but the camera viewed it differently.

There's also another Winter Reflections on Pierette's blog.  There are several good closeups of the design as well.  It appears to be in the same colors as the Needleartnut's version.
