Frederick SAL Update

The days just seem to fly by and the picture which I promised for the end of last week was never posted. Finally here is a picture of Frederick which was taken after Tuesday's SAL and some additional work Wednesday.

Doesn't he look comfortable? That's a good thing too as he is going to have to lie around in his bookcase the coming 2 1/2 weeks without me picking him up for additional stitching. We are going on vacation and Frederick is staying home.

This coming Monday DH & I and his brother & sister-in-law are going on a 16-day cruise to Hawaii. On Sunday we will drive to San Diego where we will board the cruise ship the following day >>> four days at sea >>> visit four of the Hawaiian Islands >>> four days at sea >>> back in San Diego March 6. We have been on numerous cruises (all with Holland America Line) and love it but this is the first cruise for J&C. Boy, I thought I was excited - you should see them.

Like I mentioned Frederick is staying home. I want to take along a smaller project and have decided to bring "The Tea Room" by Country Cottage Needleworks which Karen http://colourfulcreations.blogspot.com/ was kind enough to send me last fall. I will be stitching it one over on 25 ct ecru evenweave. To make things a little easier for myself during the cruise I have already stitched the outside border. Good thing I did because I probably spent just as much time frogging as I did stitching. This is such a cute design with very pretty colors and will be so much fun to stitch during our vacation.

Talk to you all in a few weeks. Happy Stitching!!!!

Yes I certainly did Maria and commented in return on your Raamaturiiul site. Since you have several blogs I don't know which one you read regularly but will also try the others when we return from vacation.
