Tonight I was just going to make a wee embroidery to keep me occupied, I had just started, cut out a wee felt critter and done a few stitches, then put it down to cook dinner.
A few minutes later my baby bro picks it up (I say baby, but gosh he is 17 now!) and starts stitching. I decide not to say anything, as I didn't want to draw attention to it or embarrass him. So I crept up and took a photo instead!


I told him if he wanted it could be his, and that I would teach him a few more stitches, a couple of hours later we have this!


I'm really proud of him, he did running stitch applique, backstitch aaaaaaaaand satin stitch and french knots! Sorry this photo sucks, I wish I could take a better one to show off my little mans skills!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That is so rad! I agree-head over and check them out. Bascom Hogue is one of my favorites too. He is on flickr and has a blog.
