Hej Diem,

Thank you for showing your pieces.I would have loved to see them but I'm living in Denmark and not in NY.
The idea with the hoop is great because it makes a painting of your embroidery work.

Thanks again and have a creative weekend.

Hej Diem,

Thank you for showing your pieces I really love them. Great idea to keep them in their hoops because that way they become embroidered paintings.

Thanks again and have a creative weekend.

Thank you Elizabeth :)
The hoops have been used a lot by crafters and other artists... its a clean way to present your work that doesn't cost a lot.

I just happened upon your blog (and beautiful work!). I was wondering if these pieces (or similar ones are for sale? I'm not sure if they are connected to the "red thread" anecdote, but I love that sentiment. My husband and I adopted our son from Russia, and for our "anniversary" I wanted to get him some "red thread" related gift.
Thanks so much!
