favorite things friday: hoop art!

Colorful thread, beautiful fabric, lace, felt, inspiring words...all framed in a wooden circle. 

I have a new obsession and it's....embroidery! Hoop art, hoopty-doo, whatever you want to call it...I've enjoyed the therapeutic nature of it and love that every piece is a little bit imperfect, but still unique and beautiful. I have a ton of fabric and a TON of embroidery hoops that I'm trying to de-stash. This has been such a fun new project to try out. 

I will be selling some of these beauties at Firefly in September! 
Here are a few I've made in the past few week, that you've probably seen if you follow my instagram feed ((which you totally should!)) 


What are some of your favorite shops that sell hoop art? Share below :)

 My current favorite that sparks inspiration is Take the Cannoli! If you're wanting to try your hand at embroidery, the blog Wild Olive has a lot of great tips & tutorial!
