So I've been on a bit of a hoop making mission the past few days.  Made 5 over two days, so lots of stitching Cheesy
Here's what I came up with -



I loooove the Disney film Emperors New Groove.  Kuzco is just too funny!! So stitched this hoop up using a colouring page I found online.  Crayon tinted in Kuzco for some more colour and added one of my favourite quotes.



I loved this Chakra diagram on Urban Threads.  Black outline is done using back stitch and chakras are shaded in using satin stitch.



Another Urban threads pattern I loved.  Outline is stitched in split stitch.  First time I've tried using this one so could be neater.    All done in 2 strands of thread.  Added some crayon tinting around the edges of the hoop for more colour.



Wanted a green man pattern to go with my goddess one.  This one is from Aimee Ray's awesome doodle stitching book which I love.  Also done in two strands of thread with some extra crayon tinting.



I was in a pretty bad mood the other day, so instead of feeling miserable I decided to try and 'stitch out' my negativity, and that's what I came up with.  It's stitched on 14 count white aida, with lots of bits of leftover thread.  I used this font generator for the text - http://www.stitchpoint.com/eng/tool/alph/cross-stitch-writing-tool.php
I have more info on my blog - http://embroideryemporium.blogspot.com/2011/08/hoop-extravaganza.html

Thanks for reading, V x
