My little collection of antique & vintage sewing hoops is growing...
i seem to 'find' them wherever I go...and usually pick them up for pennies on the dollar ~
these are my wooden hoops:
I only collect those made in Germany or the USA
no later than 1950...
these are my metal hoops:
(I love the green enamel one!)
I love how worn & smooth they are
and as I use them I try to imagine what was stitched on them.
the large ovals & the tiny rounds are my very favorites~
I put them to good use and when they're not in use
they keep me company in my sewing room.
can you see the white 'house' in the picture above?
it is being worked on now...a new Spring design from Notforgotten Farm...
The Feeding the Reindeer & Merry Yule charts will be available soon,
and will be relisted in my Etsy shop ~ I'll announce that here on the blog.
Hoping you all have a creative & happy Wednesday!
