I'm really looking forward to this swap and for me it couldn't come soon enough! It is going to be amazing!

Those of you in the current round of the hoopla swap will have seen this already. I stitched this up for my partner in the swap and am really proud of it! I used a chain stitch for the lettering, satin stitch (first time - nailed it!!) for her hair, appliqued her dress and back stitched pretty much everything else. The hoop was backed with the same fabric as her dress. I'm still quite a bit of a novice stitcher so I was super happy with how this turned out. Thanks for looking!

There is something about beautifully stitched curse words that just makes me so happy!! This is just exceptional, I love it!
24  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / spicy chicken stuffed sweet potato on: May 04, 2014 11:46:26 PM
My boyfriend and I love cooking together (most of the time... I'm a chef and can get pretty annoying..) the other night we made something exceptionally delicious so I decided to share!



We microwaved the sweet potatoes first before wrapping them in foil and oven baking so we wouldn't be eating at midnight. The chicken was cut into little chunks and marinated with my super special spice blend (aka, I went through his spice shelf finding anything and everything that tasted good!) Chicken was fried with garlic and onion, a little worcestershire sauce, fresh thyme and diced tomatoes. Then I threw in a can of kidney beans and got it delicious. The salad was red cabbage, fennel, fresh chili, loads of coriander and lime juice. Super fresh and crunchy.

It was topped with greek yogurt and cheddar cheese and MY GOODNESS it tasted amazing. Just typing this up has made me hungry for it again...

My word, there are some truly phenomenal hoops in this swap! The beaded galaxy and french knotted cherry blossom are totally blowing my mind. So much talent!

Oh no that is such a shame,   Sad I was excited for a low stress Alice swap as I don't think I'll be able to join the larger one one in August.

cross stitch is cool.

Maybe everyone could list their top 10 sayings/quotes if we go with that theme. That way the partner has plenty to choose from. Personally I don't care, I'm religious but have no problem crafting things that represent religions different from mine. Although if we did the sayings theme I doubt I would put any religious quotes on mine. I like dark quotes better hehe.

I like this idea! I was a little unsure at first about prayer flags or inspirational quotes, but if we could pick our top ten favourite words or quotes I think that would be fabulous! I am so sad I wasn't around for the wordy round...I love words!

Ooohh I would be all over this swap, count me in for sure!
29  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Hoopla swap on: April 25, 2014 05:06:11 AM
I would be all over another round, whenever it happens. Of the ideas suggested so far I really like the idea of time, a lot of great things fall under that. Same with fantasy... I would have so much fun with that.

A suggestion off the top of my head is people. Famous people, fictional people, merpeople, anyone!

Favourite books, films or shows.

dreams and nightmares.

looking forward to hearing other ideas!

So many awesome hoops - Alice, TARDIS and Lost (which I am fully convinced I need to watch now - maybe watching all episodes back to back will 1. make more sense and 2. make me go crazy!!)

moriraT - I am hoping your hoop gets to you soon - it was a bad time for me not to send a couple of days earlier  Undecided

It arrived today! And it is oh so amazing!
Thank you so much whenindoubtsew, this is such a perfect hoop, it makes me feel so cozy, and it is already nestled up on my bookshelf.




All the detail is amazing, and I adore the sparkly silver cobwebs! The fact that we both made each other black haired girls in appliqued dresses with their backs facing us made me giggle!
