I’m amazed as well! But Frederick has been finished, and not much later than I had hoped. All that needs to happen how is getting framed. I have a frame to fit it, and since there isn’t enough excess material to lace the cross stitch, I’m using some sticky-backed mounting board, which I got from the local artist store here in Salisbury. But enough talking, here’s the finished cross stitch
The backstitching really wasn’t as bad as I was making out in my head, I just had to get down and just do it 🙂 So happy that it’s finished, and now of course I want to do another couple- one for me and one for an author friend of mine. Her’s will have some modifications to it, which I’m looking forward to making 🙂
So, all that is left for me to do for Christmas is to frame Fred here, and also darn in a grand total of three ends in the other doily for my parents Christmas present, and then that’s that! I don’t think I’ve ever been this close to finishing presents this early before! I’m very impressed with myself, and enjoying the chance to knit outside of the bedroom!
How are your Christmas plans going? All finished, or are you still frantically working on things where no-one can see?
