'A Quaker Christmas plus something extra


This is an easy stitch, but I love it. The picture above is a week's worth of effort (having started last Monday). I'm pleased with the progress and am on target to complete in time for Christmas 2008



Presenting Frederick the Literate.

He's framed and on the wall. To photograph him, I had to put him on the floor because, although he's under non-reflective glass, I couldn't get a shot without the big picture window behind me and the flash from the camera leaving a haze on the finished product. Nice, huh? The matting is brown, but not as dull as suggested by the pic.
