Here is the darling hoop I received from Kanawinkie! She lamented a bit that it was more blue than green, but I am perfectly happy as my new sewing & crafting room will have icy blue walls once it's reassembled (it's currently undergoing renovation due to a basement flood). The blues and greens also complement the hoop I received from sazzra very nicely!

closeup of embroidery- I love how the blue line is yarn with embroidery wrapping it to the fabric, very clever.

Sazzra & Kanawinkie have forwarded their hoops on to one another, I hope they are as pleased with their hoops as I am with mine!
