Be merry embroidery hoop

Hello lovely people,

I love a good craft room day...and today has definitely been one of those!  There's still plenty more time to keep on crafting as Dr. Hubby is away so I can craft as long as I like ;-)

I thought I'd take a little break from colouring to show you something a bit different; it's a 3" embroidery hoop that I have made into a Christmas decoration.

I glued DP to card so it was nice and sturdy then covered the front and the back of the hoop.

I used my beautiful poinsettia die and various snipped up die cuts to add decoration and finished it with a computer-generated sentiment and pearls.

The back is covered with DP but otherwise left plain.

I really loved making this and was delighted with how it turned out so do let me know what you think of it :-)

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

What a clever idea to use an embroidery hoop like this. It works fantastically well, I'm quite tempted to try it out with lots of wintery flowers and foliage, so thank you for the inspiration! :) xx
