Here is another picture of the bluework owl:


Well technically he is Black work, but i stitched him up in navy thread to fit with kates bluework theme! hehe

This is probably about the first time I have purchaced a pattern for a hoopla round, so if you are interested in recreating this little fella then here is the link:

I received from TroubleT forever ago and finally remembered to take a pic of it! 



The detail shots:

French knots like nobody's business.  She used two different colors (lighter and darker browns) to make it even more awesome.



The stems are slightly raised, but i don't think that there's anything under them.  What is that stitch you used, and where can we learn it?   Wink

Thank you for such a great hoop!

Yay! I'm glad you like your sunflower! It was a fun hoop to stitch. Smiley

The stem is worked in raised chain stitch. Your hoop is the first time I've ever done and I love the texture! It's a composite stitch (made up of 2 different stitches) using a back stitch and chain stitch. I'm going to write up a tutorial for it for my blog so if you keep an eye out, you'll see how it's done. Cheesy

I received my way cute dreamcatcher hoop from megstar today!! I love it! Looks even better in person!

The colors are all variegated and her stitches and beading look seriously perfect. Even the exposed back looks gorgeous.

I was going to put it on my hoopla wall ... but I decided to be traditional and the colors just matched my tapestry/bedding so well!


Thanks! Cheesy
