Fredericka & A Tuffet

Wow! This was certainly a beautiful day. The sun has been shining and the thermometer made its way up to 41 degrees. It is supposed to be 52 this weekend. We will be having a heatwave lol.

 I am revealing two starts today, (running a little behind on posting) but HEY I am keeping up.  I will be knid of glad to finish up so I can get something else done. My housework has suffered a little bit. And I am curious as to which one of the fifteen I will pick up first.

Day 12 is Just A Thought by Judy Odell. I just have to have a biscornu added to my list. I originally had both Frederick and Fredericka but decided that they were too much alike to keep both.
I love this tuffet and it is going to be so pretty. I am using ThreadworX overdyed floss and stitching it on 32 Count brown Linen. It has lots of Mill Hill Beads and has ruched ribbon around the edges.
I  purchased the floss from The Stitch and Frame Shop in Rock Hill last summer and had actually forgotten about it until it turned up while I was searching for something else.

Day 13 is Fredericka by Carriage House Samplings. I really like stitching this one and I am sure that it will be one of my first finishes. I stitched quite a while on it before I put it down and took a break. I wanted to keep going but I had to step ahead to Day 14.

I've just browsed through all your posts about the challenge and had a look at what you chose. Your projects are all fantastic, so many different designers and styles. Congratulations on all your starts!

You've made some wonderful choices for your Challenge pieces! I see some of them are WIPs that I have (Peppermint Twist, etc.) and I am kicking myself that Frederika didn't make my final list after seeing your WIP pic. Beautiful stuff! I'll enjoy watching your progress on everything.

Happy new year to you & yours!
