I stitched up this hoop for the Most Wonderful oneredboot who was my partner in the Christmas Stocking swap.

Although the stitching on this piece is simple, allowing the thread to twist up, knot and actually letting it cause havoc rather than painstakingly picking out the knots and such was a bit of a challenge. It was hard not to try to "fix it". LOL

I love this! The outline text is something I really want to try, and it works so well in this project. I want one  Smiley
