I’ve had a bit of an up and down relationship with this particular cross stitch piece. I bought the kit off Amazon about a year ago, in September. This wasn’t really the best plan of mine I’ve ever had, since what with starting Uni again and everything that entails, I wasn’t able to work on it all that much.
However, at the start of the summer holidays, I decided to get him out again and see if I could finish him. So he got some loving care and attention until I realised that, what with graduation and then York University coming up, I should probably get a move on with graduation presents (now all finished!) and Christmas bits (still in progress but coming along nicely). So he get put down again.
Now I’ve popped back down to Plymouth for a few weeks to visit friends and what not, I decided to bring Frederick, rather than the Christmas bits. Which of course meant that I needed to take a photo of what he looks like currently. Which I think isn’t too shabby, all in all 🙂
There are a few more books to do next to his head, and then up to the same spot on the bottom. I also still have to do all the backstitch (mutter mutter…), and there’s a shelf above Fred which still needs doing too. But all in all, I think he’s jolly lovely 🙂
And just so you all have another picture, here’s another Christmas card decoration thingy I finished recently
I’m not quite sure I’m so fond of this one, I think the bugle beads (the long ones) need better placement planning, but all in all it’s a nice little sparkly thing I can give someone for Christmas 🙂
