I'm seriously loving the idea of embroidery hoops as wall decor. The possibilities are endless. And you don't even have to actually embroider to make them beautiful. If you have only a scrap of your most favorite vintage fabric that you know you will never ever find again because it's like, fifty years old, and soooo special, I say hoop it and hang it on the wall.
Having said that, I must add that anything hand embroidered is special and unique and just why on Earth would anyone want to pass on embroidery anyway?
Here's my latest project. I hand carved the stamp and used it on ivory cotton as a pattern.
There is something about embroidery. I just can't put my finger on it. It's like down home and comforting to me. I can't wait till the Bird is old enough to wield a needle.
