Hot and sticky afternoon

Boy it is hot today!!! I was hoping we might have a cooler day, but no....ah well what can you do??
I have been sitting in a cool room wrestling with some little stitcheries, trying to get them into little frames....getting round ones in to round frames is not do bad, but trying to get the oval ones to fit was just plain difficult!! So a little unsewing around the edges, a little pushing and pulling and saying a few choice words, I have ended up with these...
I just love the frames, I got them from Creative Muster...my problem was that I put little pieces of wadding behind the stitcheries...trying to use up what I had...then had to trim as much as possible away to get these guys to fit.  I nearly forgot to say the stitchery designs are by Barb Smith.....some of her lovely sketches. So tonight my plan is to tidy up the backs....maybe put on some thread to hang them...don't for get it is FNSI, you can join in over at http://sugarlanequilts.blogspot.com.au/...the more the merrier!
Happy sewing.

nuisance that you had so much issue getting them together. I wonder if the adjustable hoops from 'dandelyne' migh have been a bit more manageable. I have made one of those as a brooch and it gave a bit more flexibility.

They do look cute in those little hoops, Sue.

They look great Sue. Wish I could send you some of our rain to cool things down, we had terrible heat here last week and then...... the rain came, we've had over 200mls in the last three days at our place, Stephen messaged me earlier and said he'd emptied the rain gauge and it's half full again, I think it's going to be this way till Sunday.

Those tiny hoops are sooooo cute. I just love small things and those hoops fit in that category. Great to be sewing together wit h the FNSI.

They look as though they would be quite fiddly. Maybe some tweezers? Lol.
