Another strip on my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt today. These blocks should have been done in March and April...but I am getting close to being caught up! All the fabrics that I have used so far are just a mix from my stash and are all my favourites...some I have hated cutting into!
As I had to do quite a bit of speed stitching to catch up, I decided to ditch my embroidery hoop that I have always used and try back stitching without one. It sure is a lot quicker and the fabric didn't pucker, which was the problem when I first began to do hand embroidery.
Do you use a hoop for your hand embroidery work?
Would love to hear your thoughts on hoops!
