 Following up on my New Year's resolution to catch up on posting completed projects...

This is the hoop I made for the first of the Hoopla swaps


and a slightly closer view


It was inspired by a stained glass pattern I found online and by photographs of the real thing.  The wings are a lime green satin with matching embroidery floss for the veins.  The front wings also have a layer of organza with some sparkly bits scattered about.  The organza is stitched down along the leading edge (the edge at the front of the wings, near the head) but is loose at the trailing edge.  It's hard to see in the photo, but gives it a bit of 3-D interest, I think.  The body is an off-white with one ply of metallic thread added.

This one was very hard to send away - might have to start one for myself sometime!

Wow, so lovely! The colours of thread and fabric you chose compliment each other beautifully. The sparkly organza is the perfect finishing touch!

Thanks for the feedback!  Cheesy

It was almost enough to make me think about taking up stained glass so I could really do it justice.  Almost, but not quite...too many irons in the fire already.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very pretty-I love the vibrant colors. It does look like stained glass. The texture is wonderful.
