My Frederick.....


fred2
CHS "Frederick"
Stitched on 40ct. LL Pearled Barley
w/ DMC

I can truly say this is one of my favorite finishes. 
I always amazed how the colors come together
to form such a beautiful color palette.  

The cover picture of this design does
not do it justice.

Sporting his VT colors....could he be a hokie?

I just love him in this wonderful
color combination.

Such a beautiful pair!

These two are already off to be dressed in their
finest and I hope to have them hanging on
my wall this time next week!

Thank you!

Wishing you a great stitchy week!
