I was flipping through my mom's Goodhousekeeping magazine and one of their design/home ideas was to put fabric in embroidery hoops! I know I saw this on here or somewhere else! I wonder if they got it off from here.

This idea has actually been around for a while.  When my sister got married, she gave all of us attendants a lovely gift she made herself.  She took an embroidery hoop and layered potpourri between fabric and lace and then made a bow with the same ribbons she used in her bouquet.

Yeah, this has been kicking around at least since the 70's in one variety or another- I had one that was a kit when I was little that was Bicentennial themed cross stitch...

I love going through my mom's old lady magazines.
I hadn't seen the embroidery hoop thing...but sometimes if I have leftover fabric scraps that I can't throw away I just put them in picture frames I get from the thrift store. It makes for a nice eclectic wall display if done well.
Also, I saw this awesome idea in Good Housekeeping where high contrast wallpaper was adhered along the backing of a dish cabinet that was painted in a complimentary color...

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink
