Frederick the Literate

Definitely sticking with this rotation...




Granted, he really didn't have that much further to go, but still!

Here he is in all his kitty-glory :D

The metallics were the worst, and they barely even show in the picture - there are rows and rows of metallic backstitching on those red books.  I only left it off in one place, on the big green book behind his bum on the top shelf.  I hated the way it looked on the kit picture and it wasn't any better in real life, so it's not there.

Anyway, here's his wee face, finally with some whiskers.

Picture's a bit dark, sorry!  I didn't do the best job on couching his whiskers, but they're not too bad.  At least he has them!  Poor Fred has been a UFO for years, got taken out a few times, and then ended up right back in my UFO pile.  But he's done now, and he's lovely!

Frederick the Literate is a Dimensions kit, if anyone is interested in stitching him themselves, and he's not hard at all.  I'm just lazy XD

I was supposed to work on whatever project was in this spot of my rotation until the 14th, and start working on another on the 15th.  I finished Fred last night, on the 12th, and I decided to just work on some of my Sprites from DorkStitch until the 15th rolls around.  With whatever I shall work on :D


  1. Woo hoo! It must feel wonderful to have him completed! Congrats on your finish he's lovely :-)

  2. Great job! Your home must be filled with beautiful frames stitched pieces! Metallic thread is a real pain. That and blending filament. I did an undersea cross stitch that had tons of blending filament. I swore never again.

  3. Congratulations! He's adorable and you did a great job of stitching.

  4. Congrats he's so cute! I like dimensions kits they have so much variety. My very first cross stitch project was dimensions candy cane Santa. Ambitious I know :D. It's a good thing I chose them though because I could follow their instructions.

  5. What a great finish...congratulations! I have this in my stash courtesy of a giveaway from Sarah in Stitches and I can't wait to start it.

  6. Congratulations on the beautiful finish Tama. Please tell us your rotation secrets. I need something badly.
