"Free hugs" cactus embroidery hoop



Hello! I just have one project to show you today as I have been spending too much time procrastisurfing and playing video games. *Such* an adult! ~_^

This hoop is for my Herbology class in the Harry Potter craftalong. I pinned a picture ages ago and thought that I would do my own version for this challenge.

I really like how it turned out, and I'm really pleased with my embroidery handwriting as I always find text the hardest thing to embroider well ^_^
 

I'm also loving bright green with polka dots at the moment! Do you ever transfer inspiration from crafts to outfits? I totally do! And I have a polka dot blazer that I think would look even cooler with a cactus brooch on it ...

But, first - housework! >_<

procrastisurfing is my new favourite word!!

i like your cactus much more than the one you were inspired by! I would totally give him a hug!

Wheer do you hang all these things? I imagine your house with all walls full of embroidery hoo[s!

Thanks Tanya! I hang a lot of things on the wall that our staircase is on, prop them against things in various rooms, and I'm thinking about creating a hoop wall in our bedroom. I'm really enjoying getting back into embroidery! ^_^
