Not to beat a dead horse...

but one of my favorite DIY ideas ever was Purl Bee's embroidery hoop fabric art. Simply gorgeous. It was really inspiring to see the arrangements our other bloggers installed in their own homes. I think this is such a simple idea with unending possibilities. I know some are hesitant to put so many holes in one wall, but you might think about trying the adhesive no nail hooks.

OMG--this is weird. I read your post this morning about how you painted the gold frames yellow, and someone suggested you frame fabric. I immediately thought of the Purl Bee idea and clicked to comment--well all Hell broke loose with the kiddos and I forgot to do it! By the time I came back, I had to leave. I just got home to retype my comment, and here is my comment...but it's a post..._your post!_

Insert Twilight Zone music here!

I am so glad you all were inspired by this as well.

Julieta, we must have been tuned in to the same channel. :)

I've got a lot of vintage sample fabrics from the time everybody gave them during my quilting days -some 30 years ago. now find a wall to put them on.
