Embroidery hoop ... my new purchase!
Sometimes I believe in at
least six impossible
things before breakfast ***
It is normal for me to think like the above statement. If someone could climb into my head I think it would be like a scene from Alice in Wonderland and they would want to stop the spin and get out very quickly..
When having my first coffee of the day and my cold press juice, which consists of green apple, spinach, ginger & celery ( it is yummy) I sit and think about things and start up my laptop to get ready to write this blog. I am always wondering about fabrics and buttons, seeing patterns in everything and wondering how something might look, or would it work. Then I might wander past a basket of fabrics and can not help myself when my fingers run across the top of them and thoughts of designs then jump in my head at the same time as me thinking Oh I will put a wash on as well ...
Well today I was a slightly a dither when the door knocked early and I went to answer it and a man stood there with a medium ish size box, could I sign for it he said ... so I did and said thank you and brought it inside. When I managed to get into it and to my utter delight it was my new embroidery hoop system ... It was a late night purchase on Amazon over two weeks ago and I thought at the time if this is as good as it looks this will be a great tool for me...
proceeded to put my piece of embroidery into the the hoop. So what you can not see immediately is that it is two hoops one larger than the other and when either one is put down on the table and the other is on top with embroidery .. it is non slip and they are two different sizes. It is fantastic .. I went for the 9" and 7" lap hoop.
You can use them together like than or part them and use them as separate hoops its ingenious and such a fabulous and easy way to embroider.
This picture is the embroidery in the large hoop and turned upside down for you to see the small hoop.
Then turn it the other way and you have the embroidery the right way and it is tight and easy to put your needle in and stitch. You can have it on your on your lap or on a table it really helps you keep your stitches neat and tidy ... I am thrilled with it ...
They do other size ones as well and you can take them apart really easily for storage or travel and they are easy to put together .. not screw driver necessary! So I think I might get one more in adifferent size .. always two sizes in one as it were so possibly I will get a larger one like a 14" one depending what the smaller size is for that combination.
This is the packaging if you are interested in purchasing one as well and believe me they are fabulous and worth every penny. They are not wood but plastic and light weight and easy to keep clean as well .. As I say I got mine on Amazon and it was delivered to my door and very pleased I am too with it.
Well now I am off to stitch on it as it is all set up for me to continue my piece of embroidery that I am working on today ..
Have a great day and as always Happy Stitching! .. XX
