I received today and so did my partner! Cheesy

She asked me to post for her but I will have to wait until tomorrow to post my pictures of her hoop to me.

This is the hoop I ended up sending to mlookly1. She said she like country so I hoped this fits.

I backed the piece in one of her favorite colors, red. One of my most prized fabrics.

As for my hoop, it fits me perfectly. She stitched a hoop with the symbol for recycling and the word backstitched in green. Even the back of the hoop is covered in a green fabric. I loves it! Will post pictures of that one tomorrow during better light.  

thank you for the hoop and post the pictures for me and red is my favorite color too and i love it

Ok... I need to post what I received from Averia... I ended up to exhausted to post yesterday  Undecided, It is beautiful and I LOVE it!

Averia - did you do your satin stitching before or after the border? The stitching is amazing!!!



Cardinals are my favorite bird so to me that is what this bird is, it really is red!



Here is a picture of what I sent her so you can see my first attempt at embroidery and satin stitching! One day mine will look as beautiful as hers does!


Averia - thank you sooooo much! I truly LOVE my little bird!

I received an awesome hoop from imafundork today! I love it so much.
I wanted something crafty themed to go in my studio and this is perfect! All of the stitching (aside from the black words - which are beautifully done) is in metallics!

I apologise for the delay in getting this photo posted, but I've been waiting for a time when I've been awake during the sunshine. This morning was the best chance I've had.

Here's the beautiful little hoop that bubblegum_phoenix made for me.



It's a beautiful little piece of work, and I love it. Near 'my' city of Yogyakarta in Indonesia there's this huge old Buddhist stupa - Borobudur (it's actually really famous, go look it up). I've been there, oooh, 5 times now, and it's a lovely peaceful place. That's what I remember when I look at this embroidery. The colours are perfect too - they match a bunch of sepia-toned photos I took of Borobudur years ago, so I think I might put up some of those photos near this embroidery.

Thank you! It's fantastic work, and I love it!

After seeing so many inventive hoops, I may be bolder next time.

Great hoops, can't comment on them all enough.

I must say that the Hoopla Swaps produce the best galleries.
