First it was MUCH larger than I expected it - which was a good thing!! The quote is what drew me to purchase this - but I never even bothered to check measurement. I was so pleasantly surprised at the craftmanship and Cristina's attention to the finishing touches (such as the back of the hoop). My friend ABSOLUTELY adored the gift - and to be honest, I did not see it in person until she did because the shipping package was so cutely done - I gave it to her JUST like that ;))) I AM one VERY satisfied customer. NOW time to pick something for me!! ..or my MIL :)

Stitching and praying along with Our Lady of Guadalupe. I can never get enough of these colors!

The most intricate part of this Our Lady of Guadalupe hoop is finished. It's the most intricate, because of all the stops and starts after every french knot. Now, it's smooth sailing for the rest of the piece. heart_eyesheart_eyesheart_eyes Her feast day is December 12th!!

About

I'm so glad to meet you!

Hi there, my name is Cristina. I am the stitcher and weaver behind Cristina Makes. I am a self-taught embroiderer and weaver. I love all fiber art, but have chosen these specifically (or maybe they chose me). I am very connected to my family and my boys are a huge help in my business. My youngest came up with the idea for an online shop, while my oldest takes my photos!

I was stitching in my usual comfy chair one evening, when my youngest son said "Mom, we should open an embroidery stand right outside and you can sell all of the pretty stuff you make". I laughed it off as another sweet thing he said to me. Little did I know, the seed was planted. Why not? Why not open an online shop? And here I am.

I am going back to school to finish my masters degree and this shop helps with tuition and books. I hope to teach high school English (and make in the evenings!).

Happy making,

Cristina

    Hi there! Thank you SO much for visiting my shop. One day, I picked up an embroidery kit and taught myself to embroider. Next, I made my own loom and weave all the things. These designs share my heart. To see my weavings head to cristinamakes.com

    My 11 year old son takes my pictures and cheers me on every step of the way. Also, he's pretty good at coming up with cheers that rhyme with my shop name. He's a budding classical pianist and loves his Daddy's pasta and meat sauce with cheese.
