See You In September

Just a quick note to let you know that I won't be blogging the coming months. Starting tomorrow our life is going to be very hectic for quite some time. Computer time will be very limited but I will certainly drop by to visit you when I can.

'Seasonal Chairs' Janlynn Corporation

Of course I won't allow myself to be completely away from stitching. On the first day of summer Berta, Bliss and I started on a new SAL. We hope to stitch each season as it comes. It just dawned on me that Bliss who lives in Australia may be working on a different season than Berta and I. What do you think Bliss?

Whichever season it is in your part of the world - ENJOY!!!

See you in September.

Presenting Frederick

On Tuesday June 10 at 10:15 pm PT I finished the final stitch on Frederick. Oh my goodness - can you imagine - FINISHED!!! When someone asked me at SP on Wednesday how it felt I told them that it was just like the first day of school vacation - you have been waiting for so long for the day to come and then when it arrives you can't quite fathom the freedom you feel.

Frederick and I have been on a long journey together and although I loved him the entire time I must admit I often wished I had never met him. The first picture I have of this project was taken on December 11, 2006. At that time the top of the bookcase and the first three books on the top shelf were complete which means I must have been working on it for a while.

But all of that no longer matters - he's finished and I am happy and proud of him. If by some chance you have realized that Frederick does not have whiskers I want to assure you that he will have them. They will be a part of the mounting process in order to make sure they are nice and tight.

Thank you Bliss and Berta for SALing with me and my friends at Stitcher's Paradise for caring about Frederick and motivating me to finish this project. Without all of you Frederick would still be a WIP.
