I did these hoops for the previous hoopla round

couple of progress pics

The fabric was a nightmare to draw the design onto









Finished hoops



I mainly used satin stitch, with some backstitches and brick which was a new stitch for me, I had to re-do it a few times till I got the hang of it

thanks for looking

They look great. Is that newspaper print fabric or actual newspapers?

I am beyond fascinated by these - I may have to steal the idea as a housewarming present.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

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