I made this hooplah for my partner in the "anything goes needlework swap" and my partner received so I thought I would post it since I'm so proud and it's my second hoop!



The story is that the robot felt compassion for the animals in the zoo and let the all free. He went riding out of the city and into the night on an elephant's back. I just made it up. I hope you like it!

you should be proud!  as the happy recipient of this hoop (yay!) let me say it's amazingly well done, tiny even stitches.  And your satin stitch for the sky line, those long stitches all lay flat, amazing.

Most of all though I love the design and the story too!

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