Whoops! Look at these hoops!

What is it about those little circles of wood?

They are a bit popular now as home decor, not just to hold your fabric taut while you embroider.
And there are lots of great ideas around.

You can leave the embroidery in the hoop for starters.

Or you can do a simple applique.

You could be a bit more fancy and do some machine embroidery with your applique.

Or for something really simple - wind coloured twine or yarn on the frames.

I have also seen various ideas using old (or not so old) lace doilies.

This is really easy-peasy.
Just choose some gorgeous fabrics from your stash and let them tell the whole story.

You could even use them as a notice board.
