I got this pattern from Urban Threads and stitched it up for someone in the Ongoing Wish Swap.  I used a running stitch for the majority of it and threw in a little bit of satin stitching in a few places.  I am very happy with how this hoop turned out and for once I wouldn't change a thing!

It looks nice, i wonder if you will frame it or will you keep it in the hoop, if so how can you protect the needlework from the dust?

I sent it to a partner in a swap but it was sent in the hoop so I am assuming she will keep it there.  I have never really thought of how to keep my hoops dusted.  Hmmmm will have to look into that when I get home and look at my hoopla wall Wink
