Embroidery Hoop Art {a new obsession}

 I really enjoy different types of wall art. My walls at home don't reflect that statement--but they soon will. Lately, I have really been inspired by embroidery hoop art. 

I love the circular shape and raw wood frame. The possibilities are endless and I really love the idea of a cluster of different sized hoops. What a fun and wonderful way to decorate any wall.

Merriweather Council has some darling hoops. I love her color combinations. Turquoise and Mustard--yes.

The time has come for Lillypie to move out of my kitchen and into it's own studio. Exciting news for me. Even MORE exciting for my husband who has been ever-so-patient with my creative "mess".  Lillypie will soon be housed in our sun room--full of windows, brick walls, a ping pong table (that will be lovingly relocated to the shed ((hopefully)) ) and some new hoop art to inspire creativity.

I plan on picking up a few of these hoops. Perhaps I'll even create my own. I need one that says "let it be". That seems to be a statement I find myself repeating often----that and "lilly, do you need a time out?"
