These two little hoops combine freestyle machine stitching with hand embroidery to – I think – great effect! The snowdrops first appeared in last year, but as they look so good with the hyacinth hoop I thought I’d combine the two patterns so so you could stitch both together if you liked. Sharp-eyed readers may recognise the hyacinth too – the pattern first appeared as long ago as 2010(!) but this is a complete re-working of that original design using quite different techniques and stitches.
Hyacinth hoop is 9” x 5” and snowdrops is 7”.
