The Very Berry Mini Hoop Swap

The Very Berry Mini Hoop Swap

So the last week in March heralded the sending and receiving of mini hoops as organised by Ali of Veryberryhandmade IG @veryberryhandmade.

70 of us took part in this mini hoop swap. Mini because the hoops measured just 5.5cm across. The only proviso in the swap was to use Instagram to tag your hoop #veryberryhoopswap

It is amazing what you can fit into a hoop this size.

I’ve really enjoyed watching everyone’s progress over the past few weeks as the #veryberryhoopswap gallery grew and grew.

These are just a few of my favourites. My feed on Instagram has grown immeasurably since discovering all these talented crafters.

This fine embroidery from IG @motheroptica is just one example of her work. Check out her IG feed and her Etsy shop for more of these.

@debgar58 produced these delightful love birds for her swap.

This mini hoop is by Joanne whose IG is @Mojoeret4 . There is an amazing mini hexie in progress on her feed. 

This simple but beautiful sunflower is by Nicola IG @hedgehoghealing
And this final one by Ali, herself @veryberryhandmade

So which one did I receive? This one from Mari IG @liantasse , titled ‘Field Flower’. Thank you Mari!!!

And mine?

I’ve heard there’ll be further mini hoop swaps in the future. I’ll be looking out for it.

BTW my IG @love_lucie

Love, Lucie xx

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.
