First showing 'Frederick'

Finally, here is the first showing of my work on 'Frederick'. The top of the book-case is complete and I've started stitching my first book. The black area you see on the top part of the spine of the book is not blank as it would appear from the image, but stitched in black. Black on black is no picnic as far as I'm concerned but at least I was able to do it during the day.

I've finally found your blog... not easy as your profile is private. Thanx for adding my blog link on your sidebar. Appreciate it. Bet Frederick will look stunning once it's done though being done on black... not an easy feat!

Black on black! Not fun at all. Black is certainly no cup of tea to begin with, but can be managed with lighting. I don't think lighting could help enough with black on black. I think it would give me a headache. Congratulations to you for doing it! :)

Yes! I also had some problems to find your blog: it said your profile was private. No problem for me with this, but I really really wanted to thank you for your kind words about my mom! So here we are!
I have a dear friend who has been stitching Frederick in between other projects (unfinished for the moment), and she also says that black aida is not a gift to work on... Are you satisfied with the quality of the thread? In the same series, I have Maggie the messmaker, but I just can't work long on her: the threads are getting on my nerves, tangling too easily...
I have bookmarked you so I can follow your progress.
Take care!
