what's on your hoop?


i have 2 hoops on the go, i never thought i'd be able to say that but it's true, i'm becoming a hand stitchaholic!! so, on hoop 1 we have the ever gorgeous first block for the "breast friends" quilt as seen in homespun magazine, i was really worried about it when i first started to tackle it but wow, it's so much more relaxing now i've got it on my hoop!
on hoop 2 i've got my first ever hand quilting project!! it's a bit of a secret project so i can only share a snippet here and there of it ;) just to make life interesting, i decided against doing an easy straight line stitch, i went for curvey lines, what was i thinking?!
and while this isn't a hoop or a quilt ooooor a stitchery, the rack is hoop shaped and the biccies are just as yummy as the yummiest quilt and stitchery ;) we made these this morning, peanut butter & mm's biccies .. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ..

Oh Denni I am so glad you are relaxed about the hand stitching now. So far your block is looking superb and the other snippet is looking very intreguing. Spelling not too good on that word. :)
