i just completed my very first Hoopla Swap!   here's what i made for my partner...it was an incredible challenge and so much fun to make!  the pattern was freebie by Gina Matarazzo offered on her website.  i went with a Mexican/ Dia De Los Muertos inspired color scheme and i think it worked out great!



 it contains backstitch, satin stitch, split stitch, scalloping chain and 220 french knots!



this was my most difficult embroidery project ever and i'm so proud of it!

thanks for looking  Grin
