Fabric

These past few months I've collected small wooden embroidery hoops to use to decorate my wall. This project has been on my mind for the last year or so but I just got around to doing something about it. I recently bought some new fabric from the quilting store near my house. They have a great selection of modern fun fabrics and this afternoon I framed and hung a handful of them in my craft room. I have a few more small hoops in ovals and circles sitting around but need to find the right fabric for them.

What a clever idea! The fabrics are great and so is the design. Maybe your great grandmother's 23" hoop will make a nice addition with the right fabric!

It might be too big for the wall but I'll definitely consider putting it up. Otherwise I'll use it for quilting--what it was meant for.

That's super fun!

I'm glad that your great-grandmother's hoop isn't stuck in the attic. It has been used for many quilts - and you may even have one of them.
