Hoop, there it is! + GIVEAWAY

Christmas is long gone, but what about the presents? This year we gave and received a few really awesome presents, though. Check out this awesome christmas present I got for my grandparents:

It’s their house in a hoop! Maria over at Home Sweet Hoop creates the most adorable Hoop houses on the block.¬†All designs are hand stitched with embroidery floss and high quality wool felt.

What’s awesome is that Maria doesn’t just make hoop houses. Now she also makes hoop family portraits!

Here is a hint:
