hoop wall art project...


i slept horrible last night... fell asleep on the couch... never made it upstairs... woke up to the 2 hour delay notice which threw me into a tailspin... 

missed my classes again today... that made me feel irresponsible... and grumpy... it was not how i wanted to start off my day...

once the girls were off to school i tried to focus on things that needed done around here... i threw in a load of laundry {which has been piling up} and then i began wandering from room to room... do any of you do this? busy yourself about the house but you're really getting nothing done? that was me today... it was very gloomy out... the freezing rain from last night left the view from my windows a slushy, dreary mess... 

so i decided to make something... i figured that would make me feel better...  i've been wanting to make a hoop wall art project ever since i saw the liberty of london fabric hoop wall on the purl bee site years ago {you can check that out here}...

i bought these little felt flowers the other day made by basic grey {they are from the serendipity and shine on collection and the fact and fiction collection}... love the colors...

 i gathered some cute fabrics... wrapped my hoop... and began laying things out... i came up with fabric stitched on stems and leaves for the flowers...
 i wasn't really sure the look i was going for... but before i knew it, i had it assembled... and it turned out like this...
pretty cute... i think :)...
 i like the dimensional look of the flowers from the side... and the trim at the top of the bunting is braided which added some interest {that was maizie's idea :)}...
this was fun to make and i can see more of them in my future... i need to turn this into part of a grouping for our wall... that would make me happy...

now... time to focus back on my mountain of laundry...

have a happy day~
