Rose and the hoop-it-all

That title sounds like it should be some wacko novel.

Forgot to add in my previous post about the Rose of Tralee sash that I used the Super Giant-Long hoop from Hoop-it-all to do the long embroidery.

I also have the double wide, something I bought when I was under the illusion that it would make my life easier, but that one does not. I have yet to really figure out how to use both sides of it effectively. I can use the double wide the way I use the Super Giant long, but it is a bit unwieldy. I love the Super Giant long. It DOES make my life easier! The sash is a perfect example. I did, of course, have to split the design and add in reference stitches, but I only had to re-hoop once on the front of the sash and not at all on the back. Aahhh, heaven! And because it is so flat, re-hooping is so easy.

Stitching out panel dresses will be so much easier for me now…it will be a rare skirt that is longer than this sewing field.

    I’d like to read that novel — let me know when it’s done! When I read Hoop-it-all, I thought it sounded like a drug — “Houpadol” — kind of like Panadol, (only stronger,LOL). That poor Rose. I hope she gets help.
