Hahaha this is an awesome gallery! I haven't had time to make a compiled hoopla wall for this round yet, but hopefully work will give me a break and I can do it then
Anyway, on to my hoops! This is the one I sent to sinellia- she said on her pinterest that she'd love an embroidered version of the Birth of Venus by Botticelli, but that would be awfully hard. So I thought really hard and came up with the idea of doing an iron-on transfer, and then embroidering parts of that. I've never done anything like that before, but I think it came out pretty well I only stitched some of it, and even then, I sent kinda late
Closeup of flowers:
My favorite part- closeup of the lady who is holding a blanket(?) to cover Venus' shameless nudity
And this is the hoop that sinellia sent me:
I love all the colors and how all the critters look so happy and cozy! It's even more perfect, since I just got back from a trip to the aquarium last week- so adorable Thank you sinellia!
