~ Some New Things! ~

 Hello Friends & Folk!

I finally have a finish to share ~
"My Hoops" 
is a new cross stitch design PLUS pattern to make the bag to hold your hoops ~
{both designs included in one pattern, paper & PDF will be available soon}

I'm very happy with the way it turned out...
from my fabric choices to my finishing!

you can see the loop enclosure detail in the photo below:

...the bottom of the bag is rounded to hold your round or oval hoops ~
and of course it is fully lined with a bias edging along the top.

I worked the cross stitch portion on 28ct 'Wren' linen from Picture This Plus
with 2 strands of 'Faded Brown' cotton thread from Valdani.

once the cross stitching was finished, I simply trimmed down the edges of the linen, folded {ironed} them back and used a linen thread to whip-stitch it into place on the front of the bag.

easy peasy

 and I completely forgot to show the finished model
 of the current {Oct/Nov/Dec 2017}
