Does anyone have some examples of what is meant by negative space embroidery? I understand what silhouettes would be, but not so sure about negative space. Any thoughts or examples? Thanks!

A negative space embroidery would kind of be the opposite of a silhouette. The space that isn't stitched becomes the design. Here are a couple examples...

Hey for jexxican - here is my hoopla wall. Also did I ever get a laugh out of your potential hoop picture.

Actually the one picture you can't see very well is a negative space Scottie dog that Melladh made for me the last hoopla round.

I can't wait.  Haven't sent q'naire yet but will before sign ups.  I have a couple of swaps to finish up in the next week.
But I voted for this too, so i"m excited.
I keep thinking of that "coffee" that Sheep Blue did back in round 3 or 4 or Huh? That was one of my favorites I"ve seen.

and here's my hoopla wall..................
the top right round hoop (above the really large oval) is now full, but you can see where I planned other hoops.   Cheesy

Yay other peoples hoops! I love how they fit together on walls. I love how eclectic they all are!
I notice Robin also already has a negative space hoop of her name? Oooh...

LOVE the doily!

Thanks! Me too. I think I got the idea from D*S a couple years back, maybe. Or maybe it was somewhere else. Either way, someone hada bunch of doilies and didn't know what to do with them so she made a whole hoopla wall out of doilies. I feel the same: what are you supposed to do with them? What is the point? Hoop it!

I'm so happy to see so many returning hoopers to round 7 and plenty of new faces too! Yippeee! I think this is going to be a marvelous round. I'm excited about the theme.

I know I have several q'nnaires waiting in my inbox. I'll do a round of adds later today.

Lovin' all the hoopla walls!
