Hanging Hoops

I finished my first embroidery design!


I’m really happy with it. My favourite part of the hoop is the leaves, they look so realistic.


I put a line of backstitch on the purple fabric to give a little definition and suggest that the fabric’s twisted. I think it worked, the backstitch is a slightly different colour so it could suggest a fancy border on that edge.


Now I’m thinking of where to put it…


Hmm, I think I want to hang it somewhere…


It could work here, though I think the unpainted hoop makes it stand out a little. It might look better if I started a new wall (or side of a bookshelf) for plain hoops and then filled that wall/side-of-bookshelf with more hoops. I might need to stock up on hoops then!

Anyways, see ya!

  1. That looks fantastic! And it’s so cool that you designed it yourself. It’s like art and sewing combined! It sounds like I really need to see this movie, I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. Your embroidery wall is so pretty, like a mini art gallery! 😀
