A few months ago (well, six, actually) a woman at work mentioned that she and her boyfriend had gotten married.  Feeling inspired by one of the hoops in the first Hoopla Swap, I went to work.  It seemed particularly appropriate because her favorite type of reading is food-related mysteries.  It took a while but I finally finished!!  She seemed quite pleased with it.  Pattern was found online at http://spotcolors.wordpress.com/2010/06/24/free-embroidery-pattern-of-the-month-and-challenge/



and the back...

That's really cute, I'm sure it was greatly appreciated Smiley i have this food murder mystery from way back called "murder to go", each chapter is named after something from a menu. It was quite good, but i cant really remember much about it anymore.

...and I adore the background fabric.

Thanks - I really liked the colors and style of the background fabric, too. It's actually a piece of fabric I've been dragging around the country with me for years till I could decide what to do with it.  It's pretty lightweight, although it was OK for embroidering on without stabilizer. For the white fabric of the bodies applique I used drapery lining material so the background colors wouldn't show through.  It worked well for that but it was quite a bit heavier than the background fabric, so I supported the background with a circle of batting before I put the back panel in.  It gave it a bit more body and I hoped it would keep the fabric from getting droopy over time.
