I have looked at you on-line for months. Admired your beauty, your regal bearing, your striking colors. Then finally the chart arrived. I organized all the colors and the fabric. If possible, you were even more beautiful in person. Then away you went, into the zip-lock bag to wait your turn in the stitching rotation. Weeks passed, months passed. Finally I started to stitch you on Tuesday. Oh, my wonderful Frederick...............you take me back to a kinder, gentler, more peaceful time. You ease my unsettled mind. You are more then just a collection of x's. You have come to life.
