Hoop Art Swap...

Heather of Life Made Lovely, formerly Blessed Little Nest, hosted a Hoop Art Swap and I knew I had to join!! It was so much fun!! My partner was Amy of Hershey's Kisses. I made the hoop above. I dyed a doily teal, cut a flying sparrow out of burlap, and made rolled felt roses. I then embroidered a sparrow with teal embroidery floss. It is hanging from vintage lace and I couldn't be more pleased with how it came out!!
This is the hoop Amy made for me. I love the yellow fabric and the branch is such a fun touch!! Also note that she used my word for the year, "Joy"...


Thank you so much for hosting this swap, Heather!!

I love them both! So beautiful! I'm noticing a lot of birds in all the hoop art (the one I received has a bird as well) I really love it... very spring-y! :)

Oh my goodness. I am in love. the birds, the "joy". Too cute! I have some of these hoops with all the string (can you tell i'm a novice) that I bought for my son to use (that worked out real well...or not!)
It's great to see some great ideas for ME to use them myself. These are adorable!

Thank you for entering the giveaway at a yes place.
Don't forget that you can come back for a second entry and share a link to a post where you mention and add a link to the giveaway on your own blog!

Hopefully you will have your own fresh set of fun new reusable bags from one of these five weeks of giveaways!
Best to you.
Blessings!
