At long last! Frederick is finished. I started this bad boy in May of 2010. Two years! I love how it turned out. Like with his wife, Frederika, I made a couple of changes. I don't like my borders to be "off" so I did make a small change - the bottom row of diamonds in the border don't butt up to the black border like charted. I added the year of the finish rather than the 1831 as charted. And I put my initials in the box rather than an date on Frederika. And of course the biggest change, they are both stitched on the same piece of linen.
My family had a hard week last week. On April 26th one of my sister-in-laws died from complications from heart surgery. She had been ill for quite some time now and her passing was almost a blessing. But the biggest blow was the lost of my youngest niece Haley. She was only 21 and died last Monday. She will be sorely missed.
