A while back a friend gave me a doll sized embroidery hoop, over the weekend I gave it a go. I'd not done a stand alone embroidery before, but I have embroidered designs on clothing and cross stitched as a kid.

And nearly 'finished' so you can see it closer.


At it's widest point it's just 4cm wide.
