The Product:

This one is for anyone who views the mountains as their second home! Mountains paired with one of my favorites John Muir quote, this hoop just takes me to a happy state of mind every time I look at it! Perfect for the home or the office!

This item was handmade using cotton thread and is stitched onto unbleached muslin fabric. It is stretched on a 6-inch wooden embroidery hoop that is perfect for hanging right onto the wall. Each piece is backed with cotton fabric.

The Maker:

"I have always appreciated the art of handmade work, the act of pouring a little bit of yourself into the things you make whether they are for you or for others.

I've been playing with needle and thread for a couple of years now. It started with cross stitching. My mother used to cross stitch and I love that we still use the Christmas stockings she stitched for my brother, sister and me. They must be about 20 years old now and still look great! My first piece of embroidery was made for my sister's wedding. I made three pieces all together for her and immediately fell in love with embroidery. It's such a versatile craft that allows you to pretty much draw with the thread! You can be as traditional or wild with it as you want! I started with simple patterns, and then started adapting the patterns to my whims and then quickly moved to making my own patterns which I now share with you here. Whether it's stitching, gardening or baking, I love working with my hands and I love that which each piece I make, I learn a little more about myself."
