I had lots of fabric scraps left after making my quilt. A few of the bigger scrapes had pretty pictures in the actual fabric so I knew I wanted to display them somehow. I just wasn't sure how. I was at my parent's house recently. It could have been last week. It could have been 3 months ago. I now have "pregnancy brain" where I forget EVERYTHING. For example I decided I couldn't live without a baked potato last Friday so I made one in the microwave. 6 hours later when I went to use the microwave I found the cooked potato that I couldn't live without hours earlier. Turns out I didn't want it bad enough to remember to eat it after the timer went off. Anyway while at my parent's house I saw my mom's embroidery project she has been working on in her embroidery hoop. I decided to give framing in an embroidery hoop a try. I bought 3 hoops that were dirt cheap. Like maybe $1 for each. Put on my pregnancy crafting mask so my baby love doesn't come in contact with any smelly/harmful fumes. Stained the hoops. Ironed the fabric. And turns out I really like this little idea.
Don't judge how hoosier I look.
And after!!!! I love it! I'm going to wait to hang these little guys up because we are house hunting. Apparently babies and their stuff take up a lot of space. Sooo we need a bigger place. FYI last night we looked up the sex offender list for possible future house locations. That site is scary!!!! I was completely surprised by how many sex offenders are in our little town.
Happy Monday! XO! - Jess
