HoopLa, Part II

Oh, rats, this makes me mad to have to break this post into two parts, but I didn't know what else to do.

Anyway, here are the remaining photos from the previous post about our HoopLa Saturday.

Here are the Prairie Point Pincushions we made,
each showing our own different tastes.
Lots of BBD fabric here, along with others.

Here is Terri's stitcher's box,
along with the pincushion that everyone pitched in and made for her,
since she couldn't make it Saturday because of a sinus issue.
She was surprised and thrilled with this gift.
P.S.  I told her she must make her round pincushion...
you can't put a square peg into a round hoop.

Here are my unfinished pieces.
I hope to get my stitched piece into the hoop lid this week.

Close up of my hoops (painted badly)
and my pincushion.
Love that Blueberry Crumbcake.

Well, that's all for now (be sure to look at the previous post, since I had to divide them up).
I hope everyone who hasn't finished continues on...these projects were really fun, especially the part of making them with others.

Have fun!!!


  1. What a pretty idea those hoops at each other!

    Greetings from Debby

  2. Your hoops do NOT look like they were painted badly! They look whitewashed -- that's a cool finish!

  3. Of course I love your hoop box and pincushion projects--they're blue and white :) Beautiful work--I like the look of your painted hoops just he way they are!

  4. WOW!!! Love these last two posts with all the gorgeous projects~~~ They all look outstanding!! Thanks for sharing them.....Love that blue and white for sure~~~ Faye

  5. What a cool project and great idea for a get together!

  6. I lvoe your blue and white box and cushion! They're so pretty.

  7. These are really darling!!!! :D

  8. I am SO loving this piece! I like how yours is white. It's quite a contrast from the warmth of the natural wood.

  9. Thou should not covet thy friend's pincushions. Thou should not covet thy friend's pincushions. I need to keep repeating that to myself. Oh. My. GOSH!!!!!!!! B-E-A-Utiful--all of them are. I just love that Blueberry Crumb Cake!

  10. What a great idea to work your hoop boxes together. I have just finished mine. I wanted to stitch mine so I could use 5" hoops so had to search for the perfect pattern to use. I chose Brenda Keyes' Grace & Virtue Sampler which I stitched with an HDF silk thread in blue. Please visit my blog to see the finished box - scroll down a bit!
