Don't fret lady, I have to be super organised when sending Christmas gifts as I had to post them out to the UK by 29th November so I am feeling really smug at this moment in time thinking how I am all pretty much done for Christmas Hmmmmm smug smug smug  Grin That's how I'm able to get so much (albeit teeny weeny) stitching done!

Oh and if you didn't hate me enough already, did I mention that my hubby does all the Christmas cooking too?!  Grin

Belladune - that little froggy hoop is adorable! Is it 2.5"?

I'm hoping to get to the post office tomorrow to send Songs4Drowning's hoop. I placed an order for some _____ for sheepBlue's hoop and am excited to get started on that one!!

I like the idea of wrapping the hoop with ribbon!  I get so many good ideas here...I have never tried crayon tinting but it is on my list!

Lovely work!  Can't wait to start seeing the tiny hoops in the gallery!

My first one is signed, sealed, and ready to deliver!   Grin
Now , waiting for response from whats_her_name so I can start on hers.  Wink

I'm really liking the way I finished the back. I used heavy nylon thread, and stretched the stitching all across, in all directions.
That will minimize or eliminate any stretching or shifting of the fabric over time. Then, using a paintbrush, I applied tacky glue, and set a perfectly cut circle of good, thick  paper, on which I detailed the swap info.
 I'm very pleased with the result!  Smiley It is tight, and not bulky in the back; plus I was able to write all the details.
 Maybe I'll post a pic of the back for everyone to see.
That will be my Teaser!  Grin

I would love to see it!  I like seeing who did a piece and the year...plus a way to keep the stitches stable is always good...
