SAL Update - Fred

Here is this week's SAL effort on Fred. I'm posting this update an evening early because tomorrow is going to be ultra busy.

I'm amazed, you know. I've sewn the red books on the right, finished off Fred's foot and given him a shelf upon which to sleep. All in all, it's about 25% of the project stitches yet it only took two weeks. Does this mean that if I had put my mind & fingers to it, I could have completed all the cross stitching (as opposed to back-stitching) in only a few months? Probably!

Or maybe not. It's pretty simple stitching (keep telling yourself that, Bliss).

Happy stitching to everyone.


p.s. A very happy birthday for the 21st to my SAL buddy Margaret. I hope you have a lovely day.

Fred looks great! A prokect like that would probably take me 10 years!! The Love piece is also very beautiful! Have a happy day!

LOL - maybe I should apply that logic whenever I'm stitching. Great progress on Fred. A huge well done and a pat on the back! :)
