My first foray into hoopla swaps I made this tree of life for savagepixie... which was made up of a bunch of different things that my partner liked... I toyed with calling it tree of likes...

This was kind of my first embroidery hoop ever... I had done some embroidery for a medieval costume before... but I had never done it so intricately.. I had seen in an embroidery book the look of seed stitch which I really enjoyed so I used it for all of my shading... it took a longer time than I had thought...

That's incredible! So many things, so intricately intertwined, so beautifully stitched!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

The shape kind of reminds me of Squidward, but then again, he is tree-shaped (bulbous head, skinny body).  Upon closer inspection, however, this proved to be infinitely cooler than Squidward.

I just love this design!  It's like an I-spy, everytime you look you can find something else.  I'm not sure which I like best - the sea turtle, seahorse, octopus - it may have to be te gnome  Cheesy This rocks!

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