embroidery hoop

Scripture Embroidery Hoop [a baby shower gift!]

One of my besties if having her first baby this August. I wanted to give her something special to help decorate the nursery.DSC_0549So I stitched up a little hoop with a Bible verse about how God created her little precious miracle.

DSC_0553I glued some ribbon around the outside of the hoop. She doesn’t know the gender, so I was trying to go neutral… turns out I have a lot of boy fabrics and ribbon. Go figure..

DSC_0554Along with the hoop, I added some flannel burp cloths and a little baby hat. I can’t wait to meet her little one!

What have you been creating lately? Leave a link in the comments, I’d love to see. :)

A Valentine Hoop

I really enjoy decorating for Valentine’s Day. A whole day devoted to love… and a reason to add pink hearts to my boy-filled house.DSCF7313This year I whipped up a little Valentine-y hoop to add to our holiday decor. Oh how I love holiday decor. :)

DSCF7312Super simple: fabric in the hoop and felted wool hand-stitched with embroidery floss.

DSCF7311A sweet [and easy!] way to celebrate the one you love… but I like it so much, that it just might stay up year-round.
