AMIFRIENDS had a wish for a self portrait of Frida Kahlo in the Ongoing Hoopla Swap and I just could not let the opportunity go by! I made her this hoop...


Frida in a Hoop by Troublet42, on Flickr

...and here is a link to the original self portrait that was my inspiration

It's worked in crayon tinting, split stitch, back stitch and a smidge of french knots. Cheesy

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
