This is the other project I made for the Color Spectrum Hoopla swap.  This one was loads of fun because Rangerbeth chose green.  Green is my favorite color so I had a lot of different shades.  This pattern also came from sweaterbrau on deviantart (seriously check her out shes great!)  I used loads of different stitches on this one too Satin, split, french knots, back, Basketweave, herringbone, ect.

excuse ther table cloth LOL!

Little closer

Some of the "Leaves"

I don't take very good pictures I'm afarid, so it's hard to explain how pretty this came out.  Wanted to keep it, but it has a good home with Rangerbeth!
Thanks for looking! Grin

I blew up the image to a more workable size. (Its a 10 in hoop)  Then I just used a light box and a fine tip water soluble transfer pen.  And a lot of patience
