I was so impressed the first time I discovered embroidery hoop art. I thought: What an economical way to create a work of art.
How did it take so long for we lovers of sewing and embroidery to come up with this fun and pretty idea?

Embroidery Stitches:

It’s fun to test our embroidery skills on a small project. I learned how to embroider in the early nineties and was instantly smitten.

The pretty colors of embroidery floss were cheap to buy and add to my stash. The many stitches I learned stayed with me. I have a book showing those stitches around here somewhere I think.


Party Time:

The one above is embellished with many elements. It is fun and different. I love the quote added.

Or make this hoop art the theme for a party. This is such a great way to use a sewing machine as the backdrop for the festivities.
The embroidery hoop art above on the wall is just the icing on the cake.

“Heart” Work:

A simple heart hoop would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Lacy Earring Holder:

You can even use an embroidery hoop taut with lace as an earring holder.

  1. I love hoop art. I have some, but nothing fancy, just some different material in each one to go with the decor. I do love these ideas. My cousin who is 32 came to visit this past July and she asked me, what is with all these hoops? I told her to ask her mother who is 62, she would remember from the 70's. Ha Ha. Funny how things come full circle over and over. No pun intended.

  2. Brenda, It's a cold and snowy Sunday evening here in Colorado. I picked up my copy of the July 2014 Country Sampler magazine, which I had not got around to reading yet, in spite of having it on my mental list of intentions to read. I was delighted to come across the article with pictures from your home, and doubly pleased to see that you are a blogger. I have reviewed this blog and the one with blogger helps and decided to subscribe.

    Your decorating style is fun and cheerful. Your clever frugality and organization is fascinating. I look forward to seeing your future posts. Thank you for sharing yourself with us.

    Oh one more thing, I love how you phrased it, "This place is for women who circle the wagons to help one another. Who are always there, in good times and in bad."

  3. No I haven't. I've only used them for their original purpose. I love that mobile!! You're right, before we know it it'll be Valentine's Day. I used to love making that day so special when my children were young. Now I'm feeling kind of mopey hahaha

  4. I love embroidery hoop art too! I made some with different, but coordinating, fabrics to hang on the wall in my daughter's little fort under the stairs.

    Hope you're doing well đŸ™‚

  5. These are all cute…my favorite, though it is hard to pick one, is the birds-mobile.

    I have embroidered in a hoop but not left it in as art…though I remember that YOU made one last year, or within the last year and a half you were working on one or more…

  6. Some cute ideas there! I still have the Irish Prayer to finish embroidering, I'm ashamed to say. Learned the art of embroidery as a child. I'm sure many kids today have no idea what it is!
