Another finished hoop!

In my previous post about embroidery hoop art, I believe I mentioned that I had finished another hoop art project.  It is another embroidered project featuring a cute little frog!!


  
            
Here is a close up of the embroidery.


As with the 'Autumn' embroidery that I have already shown you, I finished the back off by turning in a small hem, securing it with a running stitch and then gathering the fabric to the back of the hoop.

 

 
This time though, I thought it would be nice to try out one of the decorative techniques described in Kirsty Neale's book 'Hoop-La!' which I have written about previously.  I decided to decorate the hoop with a crocheted border.  I think it turned out quite cute!!
