Coloured Embroidery Hoops

A statement embroidery hoop is a beautiful and simple way to compliment your work of finish of a gift. My hoops are covered the iconic Liberty's of London, Tana Lawn Cotton. This inspiration board features one of my current favourites.  They are hand finished to order and are available here. 

D'Anjo Coast C Pink is a Liberty's of London, Tana Lawn print from the 2021 Spring\Summer collection. It is a slightly smaller scale version of the original 1930's D'Anjo design and is an understated pale pink and white which will  effortlessly compliment your work.
The print comes from Liberty's ‘Atlas of Dreams’ collection "that celebrates the beauty and diversity of our little blue planet with a global scope. From the lush depths of the rainforest to sunspot meadow idylls, via the other worldly dunes of the desert and glittering seas – giving dreamers a space to build a new world of their own imagining."

Painted Embroidery Hoops

Framing your work in a painted Embroidery hoop will make your work Pop. For this collection I have picked out a contrasting Black- Red colour. This is my darkest red and if a fantastic alternative to my best selling Pitch Black.

My hand finished Black - Red Embroidery hoops are available in all sizes with here.

DMC Embroidery Threads

DMC Stranded Cotton is made in France and are my favourite Embroidery Threads. They are both strong and have a beautiful sheen. The 6 easily divisible strands allow you to vary the weight of your stitches allowing a great versatility.
The painter in me loves the fact that there are over 500 colours allowing me to paint with threads.
In this inspiration Board I have limited myself to four complimentary colours.
This pallet contains the following colour threads:
225 - Shell Pink (ULT VY Light)
152 - Tawny ( Dark)
3722 -   Shell Pink (Medium)
221 -   Shell Pink (VY Dark )

Kona Cotton Fabric

And finally this pretty mood board is completed with a complimentary, Kona Solid colour number 1310. This colour is called Rose and is a delicate vintage rose pink.

Kona cotton is a range of cotton made by Robert Koferman. I love this collection an is has over 365 glorious colours in the range so there is a colour for every project ( or mood-board )  Because there are so many colours to choose from they are perfect for embroidering on and quilt making.
