*On a side note and being of a certain age, in the VERY early days of counted cross stitch (before specialized cross stitch shops really came into existence), this was a REALLY popular way of not only finishing cross stitch, but also applique quilt blocks.  Often people would go further and embellish edges by gluing lace, fabric ruffles or some other type creative edging around the hoop.  These days the hoops are often painted a co-ordinating color prior to being used for framing.
