In the Hoop with... Hey Paul Studios

Kristen is the amazingly talented woman behind Hey Paul Studios. I came across Kristen's work on Instagram and have been completely enamored with it! She does a wide variety of necklaces and hoops and also hosts a monthly happy hour stitching group in Kansas City, I wish I lived closer so I could go! When I talked to Kristen she was in holiday craft show stitching mode, here's what she had to say:

I'm working on a hoop for an upcoming market. It's a quote from a favorite Christmas movie. I almost always stitch my words out of order. I'm not exactly sure why but that's the awesome part about embroidery, there are no rules! Im stitching with a Backstitch with all 6 strands of cotton floss, giving it a very plump look. I'm stitching on cotton fabric. I'm stitching away at a new coffee house that I'm trying out in Kansas City.

Kristen is also running Oh, Brother, a shop featuring donated pieces from artists around the world as a fundraiser for her brother who is undergoing cancer treatment. I'm sending her some pieces soon and there are already some amazing items for sale.

What are you stitching? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
