'Frederick the Literate' - Progress at last!

This is a cross stitch project I have wanted to do for years and years.

I started stitching this Charles Wysocki cross stitch adaptation about 18 months ago but only got as far as doing the cat's rump before putting it away and working on other projects. I think the black aida scared me a little.

Since I started regular work on it 2 weeks ago, I've done about 60 squares of stitching. This translates to about 6,000 stitches as each square is 10x10 stitches.

I love it!

Hey there

This looks great! Yes, black aida is pretty scary, but you have to admit, the design looks fab on it. Aww, the puddy tat looks so cute, but he looks a bit uncomfortable, but that's cats for you - they can get comfy and sleep in the most unlikely places!

Thanks for dropping by a while back and I apologise for not acknowledging your kind words. My brain has definitely taken up residence in my bum - I just can't seem to shake this fuzziness off!! I hope you can forgive me.

I can't wait to see your progress on this - have a lovely week :)))x

THIS IS WONDERFUL BLISS!! Thanks for finding the MS book & commenting not only on my blog but Alison's as well in order to tell me.
I'll send you an e-mail later today as I'm off to an appointment now.
Would you believe I'm also working on 'Frederick'.
