I have never seen Star Trek, so my husband explained the saying to me. (He is useful like that)  Wink

It's so cute!  He wants it... all I keep thinking now is how he may start stealing the geekery themed hoopla I receive and make his own hoopla wall!  NOOOOO!!!!  I guess that is what I get for showing him the awesomeness of craftster...  Cheesy

Everyone is so talented. I know I've said that before , but it's so true.  Cheesy

Hi all just popping in. It's been a while, I just have had a lot going on. All these hoops look great! I am almost done with my two just trying to figure out what I am going to do to finish them up...

Tiny Picard is epic Cheesy

"That's my lab table and this is my work-stool. And over there is my intergalactic spaceship! And here's where I keep assorted lengths of wire."

...oh, if it wasn't clear, I'm rarely completely serious. Smiley

Thanks for the Picard love! I knew when I saw it on fancybutch's list it had to happen.
I saw my chance and exclaimed "Engage!"!!!

I am so extremely happy you liked it!

p.s. it's also sort of quilted, soft and layered, but with a hard board back in somehow (how?), really well finished, and oh also note the stars stitched on, hard to see but great.  Smiley

In answer to the how (and when/if my other partner Likls reads this I did hers the same way)
I cut out a papertowel tracing of the inside circle of my hoop and cut that out.
I then use that template and trace the circle on thinnish cardboard, like a goldfish crackers box, and then cut that out.

Next I pin the papertowel template to my fabric and thinnish quilt batting.
I place the finished stitchery in hoop for placement and cut the "extra" fabric so approx. and inch is left all around.

The quilt batting circle gets place right onto the back of the stitching
2 reasons for the batting 1) It gives a fun 3D effect 2)It helps what ever box I used to not show through the actual stitch fabric.

Important step: Now make sure the cardboard circle fits snugly in the hoop. Just gently push down until it pops under the hoop. Then "pop" it back out. This is a good time to make cutting adjustments if I'm off...sometimes I'm WAY off. Shocked

Then, I take the card board circle and spray w/ spray adhesive and place fabric over that. Fold under any extra fabric.
Final stretch....
Get out the double sided tape and cover the inside of the hoop with the batting inserted.
Cut some snips all around the inch of main fabric for folding it over the double sided tape.
When that's all accomplished I pop the fabric covered cardboard circle in and go and have a candy bar!

More than likely there is an easier way to do it, but this seems to work for me. The steps are small enough I can do a few and then step away to defuse a kid argument.  Grin

PS: I'm long winded today, sorry. Wink

Well, I received my lovely hoop from Whenindoubtsew today! It's pretty sweet.

Not only is it beautiful, but it has some neat features - like the hoop-in-a-hoop with the forest in it!

In case you can't read it from the picture, the text is a haiku:
Over the wintry
Forest, winds howl in rage
With no leaves to blow
(by Natsume Soseki, one of my favourite haiku).

Isn't it lovely?! So very spoiled.
