This pretty chevron pattern with the word joy in bold lettering is a great hoop decoration for the holiday season.
While there’s a lot of stitching involved to cover the background, it isn’t difficult to do and you can use as many or as few colors as you like. Just make sure the color you choose for the text stands out against the background.
This design is made to fit in a 6-inch hoop on 14-count fabric. You can buy it from Stitching the Night Away.
