I really have hunted high and low for wooden vintage Duchess hoops to display some of my embroideries, I fell in love with their simplistic style an age ago and just had to have some... easier said than done. For me they look contemporary as a frame but remind me of old stitching techniques at the same time. So it hangs by a brass hook on the back or can be hung by a ribbon.
August's birdseeker is a young Great Spotted Woodpecker, no photos as yet as I am really behind it's been a super busy month... desperate for it not to be my first birdy fail so some late night stitching could be in order. Wish me luck.
Grey Wagtail & Brambling Birdseeker embroideries are now both in my Etsy shop.
