Hey there!

So since my swap partner in the Hoopla 4 swap has posted pictures of her project I figure it was safe to share now! Grin  I really liked this project because it forced me to see a story, which is something I don't usually do.  This one is about Alice in Steampunk land.  The Alice was found on Deviantart drawn by Karla-Chan http://karla-chan.deviantart.com/

Extreme close up
Alice was stitched with no more than one or two strand of floss at a time, her eyes were done with one.  The Alice hoop itself took most of the time allotted for the swap.  The Air ship was much simpler using 3 strands at a time to get a "puffy" sort of look.

The airship was one adapted from an urban threads pattern, I just added ears and hearts.   Grin

Thanks for looking!
