I made this hoop from a quote I found in the book The Art Spirit by Robert Henri. The quote reads, "Let yourself free to be what you will be". I have had this bit of fabric floating about for way too long and it was just screaming to be made into something. So there you have it, here is my something. Wink

Great quote! I love the backing fabric, almost as if someone has carved the quote into the tree.
And your stitches!! So neat! I love it.

Awwww, thank you! I wrote it on the fabric with a pencil. My handwriting can be very elegant when I put a little more effort into it. Wink

I need you to write for me. I can't even read my own handwriting. The last time, I put it up on Facebook and asked opinions as to what people thought it said.  Cheesy We never figured it out.
