Sewing themed embroidery hoop in lilac

Hello lovely people,

I hope you all had a wonderfully merry and joyful Christmas because I know I most certainly did :-)
There's not much better than spending time with loved ones and eating/drinking yourself silly for a few days!

I do still have a few Christmas projects that I didn't get round to sharing but for now I thought I'd share something non-Christmassy.

It's another decorated hoop but as this one is 5", so a bit larger than my previous 2 hoops, I decided to back it with DP and add all the embellies inside.
Most of these pretty things are from The Ribbon Girl and all the links are at the end of my post.

I really loved choosing and arranging all the little bits and pieces in co-ordinating colours.

The tape measure is a freebie stamp and the dress form was from a newly(ish) purchased sewing themed die set that I'm looking forward to using some more.

If you are already back to work then I hope it's ok and if not, enjoy the rest of your time off.

I have the rest of today and tomorrow to chill out and craft before I go back to work on Thursday.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

But what a striking, clever, gorgeous idea!! I love the wee sewing machine charm and the gorgeous mix of papers and embellies. So beautiful hunny. I love everything about it! Hugs, Wends xoxo
