Hey Hoopers! We're having so much fun with Round 5 - Color Spectrum, but it's never too early to start looking ahead to the next round!

Usually we start up our next round when the previous round is winding down. However, this time we'll have a bit more of a delay. I'm going to be pretty busy in July getting married and laying around on the beach so we won't be opening round 6 until late July/early August.

We can still brainstorm though!

Let the ideas fly...

That is perfect timing since I'll be busy finishing my house - well, the professionals will be. I'm just going to be painting! Congrats btw Cheesy


I think it would be fun to pick a specific stitch, and have it featured as much or as little as need be for our partners design, as long as its in there somewhere.

how about a mix n match incorporate an item swap? that sounds weird - lemme 'splain!

so like, when i fill out a questionnaire, i might list five themes and five objects/items....

theme       object
owls                   buttons
skulls                  beads
pinup girls            twigs
tattoos               safety pins
chickens             dried flowers

and then my partner will pick one of my themes, embroider a hoop to that theme, and incorporate in the design at least one of the item that they choose....
maybe an owl with button eyes?
or a chicken sitting on a nest made from real twigs?
or a day of the dead skull with dried flowers tacked on around it?
or a pinup girl with tiny real safety pins holding her fishnets to her garter belts?
or any other combination of theme and item...

anyways, i've been thinking maybe something along those lines would be cool...

I'm imagining chickens in diapers kept together with safety pins Smiley

I love the idea of an item swap. I have so many little shiny things with nothing to do with them.

The owl in fishnet stockings would go brilliantly with the owl in the last round with the hooters.   Wink

erica_tattoos, I think your matching idea is GENIUS!  That should result in some amazing hoops!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
