This is one of the coolest hoops I've seen! I think we can relate to the feeling going on here... being held up! I am sure the artist will like what you've done too!

Freaking Awesome! This is exactly why I haven't signed up for a hoopla swap. I could never send something this amazing even though I'd want to.

A great looking piece. I might have to check out more of mel kadel's artwork. Don't be afraid to jump into a hoopla swap Casstasstrophe. They're a lot of fun. My skill aren't that hot either, but if you do your best, your hoop will look great.

You nailed it!  Beautiful stitching, perfectly coordinated fabric and colors, you definitely do justice to the artwork.

thanks everybody!

cass ~ join up! lime does a pretty spectacular job of matching folks based on skill level, and everybody on the forum is super helpful if you ever have questions or problems! this is actually the most technically advanced hoop i've attempted since i've been doing the hoop swaps....

xperimentl ~ thanks! got lucky and got the perfect coordinating fabric for the backing in a fat quarter swap just a couple weeks before!

and lani ~ i <3 you for saying i have a little butt!!! =)
