,I've been working on redecorating one of our guest bedrooms, so here's an update for all those who asked why I was collecting old thrift store embroidery and needlework hoops:
Most of the fabrics I used are leftovers from a pile of throw cushions I made for the kids using Ikea fabric. Love love love their range of fabrics.
And this frame, the first of two to go on opposite walls, is made from die cuts punched out on my Cuttlebug in different wallpaper samples and scrapbook papers. I'm still working on the other one - punched butterflies done the same way.
I'm still not 100% sure about the configuration of the hoop frames, but will leave them as they are for now and see how I feel in a few days. What's a few nail holes in the wall between friends anyway ...???
