This one was so much fun! First, I painted the hoop. It was so easy, I don't know why I didn't do it before. Next, I learned to download new fonts onto my computer into Word. Last, I used variegated thread. Usually, the projects I stitch are so small that the color changes never show up, but here they are! This now hangs on the wall above my sewing table, which also happens to be directly across from the front door.
