Frederick the Literate


Stitch, stitch, stitching! My Frederick doesn't look all that different to the picture taken in October, but it is progressing nicely.

The 31st December 2007 finishing date is looking tight as I have to go to Sydney next week because my FIL is having bypass surgery. However, not to worry (about the stitching, I mean). Paul's away for work for most of the time between now & Christmas and then again after New Year. I will finish sooner than later.

Besides, I'm dying to start a new project!

Oh yes he certainly is moving along. He's looking great :o) Does he look like your own kitty as he seems to have a good resemblance from the photo's.

I hope your FIL's surgery goes well.

Great progress! I hope your FIL does well with his surgery. My dad and mom both had to have bypass surgery. It's really hard on the family waiting to hear something and seeing them after it's over. So take care of yourself and I'll be praying for your FIL and the family!

Frederick looks great!! Since I haven't touched him in about two weeks the finishing date looks tight for me too. If I can just get all my bookkeeping done this weekend I can spend time on him next week. I SHALL SUCCEED!!!!! January 1 start has been selected so I better.

Frederick is looking great, that's the nice thing about progress pictures you can look at one and then the other and see progress otherwise you'd miss. Good luck hitting your deadline, and I hope everything goes well for your FIL with his surgery.

I have always totally adored that chart but it's not going to happen in THIS lifetime so I'll just visit yours :]

Paul's dad came through surgery though is still unwell. Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I will pass them on to him when next I talk to him.

Wishing your family the best for your father in law's bypass. We've had a few of these in our family - all with happy outcomes! :)
