stained hoops! i'm so in love. i want to keep embroidering just so i can stain more hoops. it is surprisingly satisfying::
and it makes such a big difference. if you look back at the one i made for myself, you can see how the stain changes the whole character of the monogram. wouldn't you agree?::
i'm so happy these are done. that makes one less crafting bag on the kitchen counter. we're making progress. and the girls were very happy with their surprise. holiday gifts in february? why not?
