Embroidery Hoop Projects and Christmas gathering with the girls

So, is everyone finished with their Christmas decorating.  Even if  you are, here is a fun decor project that comes together really quick..... so you might want to plug in your glue gun girls :)
I'm sharing some embroidery hoop projects that my sis and I made.  Each one is a little different and unique from the other. There are so many fun things you can do with these. You and personalize them to your liking.
Luckily my sis decided a while back to hang on to these "biggies" instead of getting rid of them, and boy I'm glad she did.  We put them to good use.
   * If you don't have any, you can get them at most any craft store.  I had also ordered some in sets from amazon.

I decided to age mine by staining it a darker brown. I just used some brown spray mist I had on hand and it worked great.   After that, all you need it whatever you want to add and a glue gun.

It was hard to get a good photo of mine with the battery operated candle lit in it at night, so above is it  during the day and below at night.
I didn't glue the candle in, because the on/ off switch is on the bottom of the candle... but the candle sat  in there nicely with no problem.


This is the other one I made. 


Here is my sis with the two she made.

Aren't they gorgeous?!?!
She left the wood hoops natural for this one.


 For the one below she used washi tape on the edges of the hoop, and it looked so cute!

I love the simplicity of this one so much. She has a lot of great places to hang hers. There is so much amazing natural light in her house also.. so these are going to look gorgeous.



I've made a number of embroidery hoop projects the past few months. 
Here are a couple if you missed them.

What else went on this week?  Well, I had the girls over for a little down time last night.  Don't we all need that about now?   It's always such a great time with these ladies. I'm so blessed to have them for friends. I truly mean that!  Each one of them have the kindest hearts! They are just people that you WANT to be around.

We each brought some cookies to share.


Oh, did I mentioned I say, wear your slippers and pajamas? lol  I was determined it was going to be a relaxing evening for all of us.  We just ordered pizza and sat around and chatted.  Trust me, there is never a lull in the conversation. ( Oh, yeah, there never is with me around lol).  Actually we all chatted a bunch.. and it was great!
Once we had room, we  had cookies and hot chocolate.





Life is good.


I hope you all find time to step away from the hustle and bustle of this time of year ( even if just for a little bit)  to spend some time just enjoying your favorite people.  It's the best gift you can give yourself!



Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs all around!  Vicki
