I stitched this hoop for Ffrogg in the Ongoing Hoopla Swap. She has a love for nature and the color green so I claimed her for a doodle hoop with a twist.

I call this piece Mother Nature's Message. Within the stitching are 3 different words. Can you find them? Cheesy

I was able to deliver this piece to Ffrogg face to face. We met up for high tea (la ti da! Wink ) to chit chat and talk hoops. Her BF was with us and I made them both find the message on their own. Such fun! Cheesy

Really neat idea. I can see the words but they are so well hidden that I never would have found them if I did not know they were there.

It took me quite a while to find them, but I did. I may do something similar for my husband for our wedding anniversary. We say the same thing before we go to sleep every night. I may secret it into a stitching. Awesome idea and so pretty. The words are hard to find, but once you do they're always in the forefront of my eye and I can't imagine missing them. Super special.
