Chevron Squirrels!

Remember the robot embroidery hoop I sent off as part of Wild Olive's stitch swap? Well I got my hoop in the mail and am overjoyed with how perfect it is for me! My partner ended up being the super talented Stacee Adams, a lovely crafty mom from Atlanta, who created the most amazing teal and gold chevron pattern squirrel hoop:

Isn't he the cutest? To top it off she included a bunch of other goodies in with the hoop making me feel extra spoiled. Take a peek:

Do you see that space robot fat quarter in there? Boy I wish we had awesome fabric shops like the one Stacee works at here in Victoria! What a sweetheart Stacee is. I can't get over the amazing detail in the squirrel hoop and she even covered the hoop in neat coordinating fabric. That lady has an eye for detail! Take a closer look: 

I've decided this hoop will become the focal point of another embroidery hoop wall piece (much like the one I did in the living room) to fill the giant empty wall in my bedroom! Now I just need to find some matching scraps to go with my squirrel! What fun! What do you think?


  1. Ah Squirrels... The most magnificent creature of the animal kingdom.

  2. Ah rats with fluffy tails. So majestic!

    This is really cute, and I wish that you had some better fabric stores too, though the way you wrote that sentence, it sounds like Stacee works at a fabric store in Victoria, and I got confused!

  3. I saw that one in the Flickr group - So cute!! Love the spaceship fabric too :D


  4. Yay! I'm so glad you like it! I had fun stitching him up!

  5. LOVE!!!!! It is soo amazing!!!! The fabric is way cute too!!

  6. That is a seriously awesome hoop! I love the gold and teal together ^_^ Also, that spaceship fabric rocks!

  7. I love how she edged the hoop in material too - that's a gorgeous added detail.
