I'm so glad you like it! I thought it was so funny that we both picked Dia de los Muertos for one another, too.

From Camelama. Sweet! Look at this detail:

I mean, all the branches are twisted together in the truck. This is so cool! The  fabric and threads (all but the shiny) are all hand dyed/organic. AWESOME! Oh, she also sent a postcard that matches the hoop. And a PC from Seattle with a Kracken Taking down a ship. They are rad. I didn't photograph them, though, sorry. Hm, I suck.
But yeah, I need to rearrange my hoop wall now and add this to it. All 4 hoops are purple but I'm about to make one for myself that's red and black, hm...

Beautiful! It is so cool that most of the threads are hand dyed and organic.

Look at the Awesomeness I got from Ffrogg! Cheesy



Look at the additional REAL cogs, to complement the embroidered ones, and the super tidy stitches filling the middle of the M (in two colors!) They're all pairs of stitches, giving a great textured look. It's perfect, it really is Smiley

Click it and you should be able to find a much larger size, for details Smiley (I hope it's not blurry, I'm posting from my mini laptop, while sitting outside in the sun, so it's hard for me to see what I'm doing Cheesy )

It suits my hoop collection perfectly, too, this is what I've got so far



I have to find a good board to put on the wall, to easily pin them up Cheesy And look how perfectly it complements the brilliant diptych Bubblegum_Phoenix made me!

Thank you!!

I swear this round has been so amazingly awesome!  I love all the hoops and have pinned a bunch!!

Now I'm gonna litter the board with the AWESOME hoop I received from average_fan!!

(I took these with my phone because low and behold my phone's megapixels is the same as my camera!  Huh)

Here's the whole shebang!


The lovely note she sent!  (I always mean to send detailed notes about why I did what I did but end up just sending cards, haha!)


The back of the hoop! (I know the suspense is building!)


The front of the hoop!


The type nerd in me is going crazy for how wonderful these stitches are!  It's such great helvetica!  She said she took it from my pinterest but this is so much nicer!

THANK YOU AVERAGE_FAN!  I luff this hoop so much!!  <3

I also received from honeyd!


This is what came with the mail - wrapped in silk paper held together by Carebear stickers! And it's the gloomy bear, I loved him!


The whole bunch - so much!
I mentioned that I love Disney and that Ursula is my homegirl and she made me an Ursula-Hoop! How neat is that??
She also sent Disney stickers, a New-York-magnet, cookies and a heart full of M&M's. There's also a lovely purple bracelet (with an elephant closure D'AWWW) which fits not on my wrist but perfectly around my ankle - as soon as sandals-time is back in Germany I'm going to wear it like woah!


The hoop in all it's glory! She looks like she's just about to burst in song. ♪Arme Seelen in Not, voll Schmerz, voll Pein!♬
I love the fabric too, did you dye it yourself?


Aaaand my hoopla wall... Seeing all those great hoops in this gallery and the one's before makes me want to fill my wall even more !

Thanks honeyd, for being such a great swap partner! ♥

I hope and am sure that those that got flaked on will have awesome angels who'll fill in!

Here are all of the goodies Melladh sent me!!  Cheesy  Lots of it is for paper crafting!  The embroidery she sent me is actually a diptych!  Cheesy  Its all in shades of green on a purple background *SQUEE*  and its very whimsical!




This is the larger hoop with a branch - the flowers on the branch are actually books dropping seeds on the ground which we find in the smaller hoop!

And the seeds grow out of the open book on the ground!  I love it!  It kind of gives me an idea for another hoop that would kind of coordinate with these two.  Cheesy


Thanks so much Melladh!  I love them!  I have a space, I just need to get the hoops on the wall.  Roll Eyes

Are they as "busy" in real life as they look in every photo? Cheesy My own photos look just as busy, but I didn't experience them that way when I sent them! I'm happy you liked everything Smiley Oh, and I forgot to mention that in our personal swap I got a book! Dean Koontz - Odd Thomas. I'm looking forward to starting it soon Cheesy

They do come across as kind of busy in pictures but to look at them on the wall with my other hoops they aren't all that busy.  I still love them!  Thanks!  Cheesy
