I’m so excited to see tons of fox crafts all over the internet. Maybe having one of these foxy crafts in my home will keep me from wanting one as a pet. Seriously, I’ve looked in to it, and it’s totally legal to have a pet fox in the state of Oregon.

Embroidery Hoop Crafts

I got super into embroidery for about 2 weeks. Just long enough to collect a ton of hoops in different sizes, but not long enough to actually use them for their intended purpose. I just love knitting too much, it’s kind of my go-to when I need to keep my hands busy. Lucky for me, there have been a ton of craft projects popping up that use embroidery hoops in creative ways, so I can still feel like I’m getting use out of my huge collection without starting an embroidery project.
