Meet my friend, Fredricka~~~

I don't know if she looks sassy, or perhaps a little stuffy, but I do I LOVE the colors that Carriage House Samplings put together in creating this beautiful design, Fredricka~~~In typical CHS fashion, the fallish colors of the NPI silk lays perfectly on the Pearled Barley 40 ct Lakeside linen..... I know she is not one of their new patterns, but she is a classic...And, Fredrick will be also~~ I am going to dig him out of my basket and stitch him up in either Sept or Oct....we will see....

Here she is up close..... I think she is grinning at us.....


And, here is that pretty flower up close....If that doesn't screen Autumn, I don't know what does~~

That's it for now friends.....Time to take a look at some of my upcoming exchange deadlines and get myself busy!~~~

Until later,

Faye

Faye, She is beautiful! I had never really given any thought about her being fall colors...you are so right, perfect fall stitch!

Siobhan said...

Wow!!! That was quick! Frederika looks fantastic. I always think of her as a summer stitch, I guess because of the strawberries, but I agree about those autumnal shades. Congrats on a beautiful finish!

I just finish Frederick and ready to start Frederika when I realized I am missing the color chart for her. I have the stitching chart and the chart for Frederika is not the same as Frederick. Help! If anyone has the thread chart for Frederika I would greatly appreciate!
