My partner for the OTT hunger games swap (we opted to do bigger than tiny things) received so I can post this thing! Apparently I'm insane, because I started this so soon after finishing the first one, but I couldn't resist since I knew she liked that one. Here's the link to it if you missed it: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404643.0

This took a little less time to finish, probably around 10 hours total, because I had already gotten used to all the new stitches I was using. For this I used 3 different variations of the fishbone stitch (pretty sure I invented them out of sheer naivety), back stitch, split, french knots, colonial knots, satin stitch, lazy daisy, and some weird satin with partially raised stitches that I made up on accident. I had actually wanted to make the forest even denser but I ran out of time. I also planned to add more things from the arena like in the last one too. This one only has the streams, cave, and career tent.

Thanks guys! I think I might like it better than the first one. The stitches are definitely neat and cleaner at least.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Seriously, you have to stop with the incredible Hunger Games hoops...I can't BEGIN to tell you how jealous they're making me! Smiley

I love this one! Can't decide which one I like better. Very impressive!
