September’s Finished Object

With the start of the fall school semester, I got a bit behind on my monthly wip finishes, but I’m catching up! Archer was August’s, so we’ll call this one September’s, which means I still have almost three weeks to finish October’s. 🙂

This hoop started out as a way to use up small lengths of leftover floss, and I really like the way it came together.

It was inspired by an old Sarah McLachlan song, “Black and White.” I always get the itch to stitch while listening to music, so it’s nice to finish a lyric-inspired hoop for once.

Sadly, I tried to wash out the pencil lines and the color from the red embroidery floss bled onto the white background. It’s not super noticeable, but it violates my perfectionist tendencies. lol. The worst part is that there are still visible pencil lines. Oh well. This one is just going on my own wall at home, so I suppose it’s good enough for who it’s for, as my dad would say.
