Frederick the Literate

Here's my progress on Frederick the Literate. One of my stitching groups has been talking about this one and doing a Stitch-Along of it. I'm not officially participating in it (I've got too many other projects I'm juggling to commit wholeheartedly to this one) but it was like an old friend when I pulled it out.

I'm not even a big cat fan - but I am an avid reader, so it's half fitting for me! I just thought it was a really cute picture.

For those that don't know, it's a Dimensions kit. However, the only part of it that's really Dimensions for me is the pattern - I subbed out different fabric (they had stiff aida, and Dimensions - at least in my opinion - doesn't give you enough fabric, and I just didn't want to deal with that. Then I found a Dimensions / DMC conversion and converted it all to DMC floss.

Anyway, thanks for looking. This was actually my progress picture from LAST Sunday (the 19th) I just never got around to blogging it.

Frederick is looking awesome!!

I haven't bought a kit in forever for the same reasons you changed out your fabby and threads.

Looks great, I still struggle with dark fabrics.I love the look but they drag on because I can't see the holes very well!
