Finally ... he ... is ... done!

Hi friends!

Frederick is finally finished! I looked back over my blog posts and I have been talking about finishing Frederick since last March. Oh dear!  I don't know why I could not stay focused on him, but for whatever reason he was a real struggle to finish. But that's all in the past now. He is finished ... he is handsome ... and he is ready to join his mate Frederika. I love them both!





 
I have been stitching quite a bit on my Scarlet Letter Year project "Sarah Stuart". She is delightful and I am thoroughly enjoying her. Lots of color that helps to brighten our dreary Pittsburgh winter days! Here are a few photos from last week.





Participating in the SLY has really been such fun. There are so, so many very talented stitchers out there! The projects are amazing! Great fun ... great inspiration!

Hope you are having great fun with the project(s) you are working on! As always, I appreciate your visit. Thank you for stopping by and do come back again!

God Bless,
Lanie

  19. Hello Lanie!! I found you through a lovely comment you made on my sampler on the Scarlet Letter blog!! I can't believe I didn't find you before! I love Frederick and just purchased the chart myself, although it will be awhile before I tackle him. Well done on finishing him so he can join his mate!! Love your sampler you are working on. Sarah Stuart is very stunning and I like the different stitching that is involved!
