I recveived from sloth003 today! I love what she made for me, it's so cool! It's Serenity, the ship from Firefly! With the quote "Let's be bad guys." which is my favorite! I love how she used grey and black and for some stitches the thread is bigger so it adds dimension.

Here is my new hoop in all it's geeky glory:
   

Thank you so mych sloth003, I love it! It's just perfect and so my style. The only thing that would have made this better is if you'd sent Captain Mal Reynolds along!  Wink

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

That ship turned out great! I agree the thick and thin lines really make the piece for me.

Jemimah received the hoop I made her, but is having camera difficulties so I'm going to post pictures.

One of the themes she listed was Japanese, and she also likes vintage styles.

Let me tell you, it is even more beautiful in person Smiley. blue_lalita's stitching is just exquisite, so delicate and pretty. It's on silk fabric (I think? or something with a similar lustre), which gives it a lovely sheen. I am a very lucky girl - thank you so much! Smiley


There are so many great hoops to admire - the Firefly one is fab!

I'm really loving the Asian hoop. The details on the bird and flowers are just lovely.

I've sent!!  Here's hoping my partner enjoys it!

It's dupioni silk, leftovers from a scarf project. I like using it for embroidery because it has an interesting texture.
