I just checked and jungrrl should have her hoops waiting for her today! I'm so excited to hear what she thinks  Grin

Oh the Owl and the Pussycat are adorable!
And I love the way they are connected. Great piece  Grin

Oh jexxican, that is so scary, I'm always afraid of misplacing my pieces.

I shipped out this morning!

I did have to change the backing a little - ended up doing it at least 3 times because the fabric I stitched on was white and I typically don't do that too often, ha.

I am very proud of both of my hoops. Though I think they will appeal to jungrrl more than they will to everyone on a whole - I'm okay with that.  Grin They are for her after all, haha.

Stitching is finished! I need to pick up a 7 inch hoop when I'm out tonight. I think it will look best in 6" and 7" hoops. I'm super excited about them - I hope jungrrl loves them as much as I do!

I'll back them tomorrow and plan on shipping on Friday.  Smiley

Hoop 1 if finished!
And while I was showing it to a friend this afternoon, we came up with an even better idea for the second hoop. So now I'll be starting hoop 2 over (though keeping the first just in case, ha)! But now I'm off to do a little research to see if I can find a picture of a ____ and ____ for jungrrl.

 Cheesy

I got started today! And I'm so excited!

Important lessons for the day:
1.
If you want to do any color tinting - do it BEFORE you stitch, hahaha.
Maybe I should have looked up some guidelines before jumping right into it?
Nah!  Grin

2. BEFORE you start stitching, make sure you're not using the colors your partner said not to!

I was a little too excited to get started today apparently!

I've finally decided on my (second) design. Second attempt that is. This one is going to work and it's going to be awesome. I think so at least.  Grin

I'll be sketching the first hoop tomorrow and probably start stitching this weekend!

Oh man, I didn't even know we had a gallery yet! And it's off to a great start. I can't say which I like better (and will not - because there are so many to come and all will be equally freaking awesome)!
What a talented group we have here.

Needless to say, I better get stitching! I've just finally decided on my idea, ha.

It's beautiful. I love the way you did the coloring in her hair.

Just checking in - I'm still here and alive! I was out for 2 days with a wicked migraine which left me in a dark room complaining that the cats are walking too loud, ha.

RE: Metallics - thread heaven is my savior. Love the stuff. And if you haven't tried the Sublime Stitching metallics, you definitely should - they rock! They tend to snag less and it comes in some great colors.

On the stitching front, I am going on to plan b. Unfortunately I'm not 100% what plan b is right now  Grin

I had something sketched out but I just wasn't happy with what I was stitching. My husband said it was okay, but I wasn't thrilled with it, so I'm off to find something else for jungrrl!
