A Weekend of Stitching

It has been a good stitching weekend. Friday night, Allen had a couple of friends over for dinner and cartoon watching. I spent my evening watching The Venture Brothers with the guys and finished all of the charted stitching on Brotherly Love. All I need to do now is add the names and birthdays of my friend’s little boys. I will go ahead and wait until the baby arrives to complete it.

After finishing Brotherly Love, it was on to put some time in on Mystery 9. I really want to catch up after falling a bit behind last month. I am still not sure it is possible as those silly artichokes take so long. I am totally done with the stitching for parts 8 and 9 on half of the piece and got a good start of part8 on a third corner. Hopefully, I will be almost done with that artichoke tonight.

And in exchange news, I received my Redwork Exchange from Ashleigh on Friday. She stitched a lovely quaker design and finished it as a photo album. I am thinking about using this as an album for pics of my stitching, particularly those things I give as gifts. Thanks again Ashleigh!!


  1. Mystery 9 is looking so gorgeous! I may need to buy this chart before the mystery ends. 🙂 Your Brotherly Love finish is SO cute — I just love those Brittercup Designs, I need to stitch one!

  2. Leslie – I love how Mystery 9 is coming along – you go girl!! and the photo album is adorable to boot! I think using it for pics of your stitching is a great idea.

  3. MIX looks so good! You still have most of the month left – you can catch up! 🙂

  4. Love Brotherly Love! Very cute!

  5. Congrats on the lovely finish! I love the Redwork exchange Ash made for you. I’m sure you’ll manage to catch up with Mystery IX!

  6. Glad you liked the photo album 🙂

  7. your WIPs looks great!

  8. Well done on Brotherly Love! And your Mystery IX is looking good, too. You’re not the only one who had the artichokes take a long time. That seemed to be common.

  9. Brotherly Love looks great! What a neat exchange from Ashleigh, lucky you!

  10. Brotherly Love is adorable. Mystery IX looks great and what a nice exchange piece you received. Looks like it was a good day of stitching for you :>)
