I have fallen in love with Hoop Art.
If you would have told me this a year ago, I would have asked you what hoop art was.
I learned about it at the craft weekend I went to in January.
Here's my latest attempt.
Let's look a little closer.
I wish I could say that I embroidered these flowers. I didn't, but I'm sure someone could. No one will know that I didn't.
Except that I just told everyone I know...oh well.
It takes some practice.
It also takes some practice to learn how not to burn yourself with a glue gun.
Those things are hot!
this tutorial to learn how to roll them. (I liked her pictures even though I didn't make the baby headband.)
I like the texture of the strings sticking out of the flowers to add interest, so I didn't cut them off.
I have this doily and a few more from when I lived in Paraguay.
It means a lot to me.
It is a lovely remembrance from a very broken time in my life.
The living room is still getting some the final touches: electrical covers, curtains, slipcovers and such are still to come.
This wall is long and this is just a small section.
I keep thinking I could add some more hoops.
you tell me:
Is it finished?
Should I add some more? If so, what color should I bring in?
Should I take it all down and start over?
I have a small cabinet that I'm going to place here instead of the turquoise chair. Although, I could be persuaded to leave the chair.
You know I've said before that decorating is not my thing.
I'm so glad I have all of you.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
