Stitching is one of those crafts that I start but rarely finish because I lack patience Roll Eyes 
This particular hoop was made for one of my swap partners...based on one of her answers in the swap questionnaire Grin

I freehanded the text and yarn ball/knitting needles in pencil and stitched.  Painted the hoop with black acrylic to make the stitching 'pop' Smiley



This was fun (and quick!) to stitch, so I will be making something similar for my craftroom (based on a quote I like) Cheesy

I love this...and can totally relate Smiley! It was a great idea to paint the hoop. It really does make the design stand out.

The black hoop is perfect with this. I love knitting but it does make my stabby sometimes, so I feel your partner's pain Smiley The bent needle made me laugh!
