I'll admit it, I'm addicted. As soon as I had finished my first sampler I was already rifling through my house to find something else to embroider.

Originally this was not going to stay on the hoop, but I fell in love with the hot pink surrounding the colorful Polka Dots

Here are the Pics. I learned some new stitches!

This was so much fun to do!

How pretty! The plastic hoop matches the stitching perfectly. Smiley

I absolutely love the bullion-knot rose! I never thought of using those to make a flower.

This is so cute!  I love the bright colors and the hoop gives it a nice accent.

I really like how the polka dot fabric works with the embroidery and doesn't distract from it--that's not always an easy thing to manage. Cheesy Great job!

So vibrant and cheerful.  I love how all of your different stitches give it so much texture and dimension.  The chunky chain stitches and rose are great. Definitely dig the pink hoop with it.

I absolutely love how colorful this is! Your stitches look fantastic  Smiley

I also love my bright pink Hoopla hoop, it makes embroidering just a bit more fun, especially when I'm doing silhouettes (which is all the time  Cheesy).

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

That is really quite beautiful! I am inspired to pull out some polka dot fabric and stitch away!
