Frederick the Literate is started

Well, this week I started on Frederick the Literate. It was a Dimensions kit but I didn't like the aida (too stiff) and I didn't like the thread (too icky!). So....substituted some 28 count evenweave (not sure what kind) and re-did the floss with DMC and we're off to the races. This one will take a while, I'm sure. This is one week's progress. Stitching black on black is interesting, to say the least!!

Thanks for checking it out!

Good progress for one week. Stitching on black is a challenge but it looks lovely.

Excellent start...This is one that I would have to do on another color. Great work!

That's a great start. I like this piece, but am turned away because it is a kit.

Lovely start and a great progress! I'm stitching this one also and I found that stitching black on black is easier than white on white. Good luck and I'm looking forward to new updates.
