Embroidered Hoops

At least once a month I meet up with two friends for coffee.  We meet at a local Starbucks right after we've dropped our kids off at their respective schools.  We've known each other for years and we've been there for each other through all that life has thrown at us during that time.  Friends like that are pure gold. 

This year I wanted to make them something special and this is what I came up with.  One of them started keeping bees this year and the other has a crazy Boston Terrier, hence the designs.  

The hoops are 4inch diameter embroidery hoops which makes those little English paper pieced hexagons about ½ inch in size!  They are pieced together and then appliquéd to the linen.  I really enjoyed using a mix of materials.  The backs of the hoops are finished with a circle of white felt.
