Fred and a little fun :)

Top row finished!

Top row finished!

So, I’ve mostly been working on Frederick this past week, in between having fun and shopping since I’m down in Plymouth. And meeting up with some friends 🙂 And now the top row is completely finished! Well, the cross stitching is completely finished :). If you ignore the missing shelf which goes above it 🙂 Which I am doing. As you can see, I’ve now started the bottom left. There are 7 books here, including the two I’ve started. Hopefully they won’t take too long to do. And then the back stitch… I know it’s going to look pretty damn awesome when it’s all done, but it is really rather boring, so Fred may get put away for a while before I start it. Or maybe intersperse the back stitching with more interesting stuff…after all, it is (hopefully) going to be a Christmas present to my wonderful ex-next-door neighbors (they recently moved into a smaller place).

I’ve also had a bit of a play around with variegated threads 🙂 And come to the conclusion that something a tad bigger would show off the changes a bit better. But all in all, I really like it :). Now I just need to master my mum’s sewing machine and sew these together 🙂 Which will happen when I get back to Salisbury. Hopefully I won’t mess things up too badly…
