What's all the hoopla?

Great news blog readers! I am on the mend! I may still have some monster headaches, but the majority of my cold symptoms are subsiding and I've got a whole whack of embroidery hoops to share! So to celebrate my jump back into almost health I'll be sharing my creations all week long! Yay! Take a peek at my favourite sea friends (also available in pinback button form too!):

Hooray! I'm really loving hoop making and by mixing in some muted toned wool felt they can pack quite the punch! Here's a closer shot of lil' buddy crab, squid, and sea star:

I'm thrilled to say I even worked out a way to finish off the back of the piece using some cardstock, custom made stamps, and felt:

I think it is quite the improvement from the mess of stitches and lets me throw a name and website in there for good measure. Now for one last picture with my hand in there so you can get an idea of the size of it:

I bought five sizes of hoops to play around with and this one if of the 4" variety.  I figure this way I will have more variety to each of the hoops and makes it easier for tiered pricing! Yipee! So what do you think of the sea life friends?


  1. A mustache cat hoop would bring sophistication to any tea room...just sayin...

  2. I love the way you lined the back. I'm still trying to figure out a way I like. This looks great! Your stitches are so even! I love making hoops, too. Those are the projects I do when I need a break from my regular product making.

  3. I am in love with the Yeti xx


  4. i love this little one too!!!!!!

  5. Soooo adorable! I love the happy red squid ^_^ The back looks great as well - very professional ^_^
