This is quite the project, and as I've stated in the past, I'm not really sure I'm a seasoned enough stitcher to have taken on something of this magnitude.
I can't say that I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to do this. I do know exactly what I was thinking. My boyfriend and I had just broken up, and in an attempt to cheer me up, Rose tricked me into re-joining the outside world by taking me on a trip to a little cross-stitch shop. Once inside, seeing all of the amazing work displayed in the shop, I had a sudden need to accomplish something great, and in that moment, something great came in the form of a ridiculously difficult cross-stitch project!
It started off as a "screw you, boyfriend" project that has, over the last 5 months, turned into a "this thing is gonna kill me" project.
So, that's the story of Sir Frederick!
This is my progress to date. Pictured above is approximately 50 hours of work, which has amounted to a couple of branches (I think), and some blue sky. My 1 hour a day resolution hasn't been going all that well because, well, life has gotten in the way :-) It happens! Last night I sat down and stitched for 2 hours, which pretty much just filled in holes. But every cross stitched is one more in the right direction! How's that for philosophical :-P
Anyways...Sir Frederick and I have a very important date tomorrow evening that will not be broken!!
