Patchwork sewing hoop

Hello lovely people,

I hope everyone's week is going well so far...and hasn't been too wet!  You'd never guess it was August would you?!

I'm looking forward to a couple of days off with plenty of crafting planned :-)

Today I have one of my embroidery hoops to share with you.

I wanted to make a decorative item for my sister-in-law's birthday and since she makes pretty things with felt and fabric, I made this sewing-themed design for her to hang in her creative space.

The image is from a brilliant cross-stitch themed stamp set and I printed the text on my computer.

I thought it would be really cute to create a patchwork background using tiny hexagons die cut from several different papers and my new Pion papers were perfect for this with the cute ditsy patterns.
