It's decided! In a delirium of half sleep this morning, I finally narrowed down my designs for both partners. I will probably get started on one of them on my flight back home on Wednesday. I have to educate myself on a new technique for one of them, so I hope it works out Smiley

So after spending about 6 hours on and off today Homerof2"s hoop is finished except for the back. And I'm at a loss as to how to finish up the back of this hoop. Also how do most of ya'll ship your hooplas? I'll be shipping mine from PA to Canada so is there anything special I need to know of how to pack it?

I think my brainstorming is almost finished, I just need a few details and these hoops will be home free!

Started one of the components of the hoop, decided to skip that and replace with _____ as it will fit the idea better for my partner and fit the available crafting time much better.   But don't worry, no waste here.  Hubs wants me to finish the first attempt later for us.

I started on one hoop this week as I had an epiphany on what to do - sadly the original concept was to make it 3D and that didn't work out at all - so it stays 2D meh. Not as cool as I intended but what can you do if nothing works out.

For partner 2 I haven't decided on what to do yet - I know what other stuff than thread I want to incorporate but I still need to see if option 1 or 2 works better. Kommt Zeit, kommt Rat (Time will tell Wink )

I always wrap it once over in tissue paper and ship it in a padded envelope. I sent one from the US to France that way and it arrived fine. Smiley

 I finish the back of my hoops by putting a piece of fabric on the back of my embroidery to cover the backside stitching, stretch both pieces of fabric in the hoop, then cut the fabric down and glue both layers of fabric to the back of the actual hoop.

Everyone finishes the back of their embroideries differently, but thats my preferred way. Smiley

one of my early hoops came apart in the mail Sad  So now I always pack them between two pieces of tough cardboard (ofte a cut up box) and that seems to work.
