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!

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

There is so much to look at.  Such a wonderful variety of stitches and designs mixing in there.  Gotta love green!

Just so everyone knows... THIS IS MINE! Mwahahah. Just kidding, but really she made this for me in the hoopla swap. I am so thrilled to own it. I didn't even know the name of most stitches! Thanks Anya, you are a goddess.

It took two weeks, about 12hrs a day. I don't think I slept much during this swap LOL!

Love it! And it would take me two years.... but I'm not that good with embroidery and with all those different stitches, I would have to look it up every time.... Tongue

You ROCK!
