This is my first hoop.  I've done some embroidery before though (not much.)  I learned that metallic thread is a PITA and that I suck at taking pictures (some of these are Cell, some are digicam.) I was heavily inspired by the work of loveandasandwich

Thanks everyone!  Looking at the pics, I can see a bunch of mistakes! LOL. Also, it didn't photograph well but the highlights in the mane and tail are done w/ metallic thread.

I love it!  Sparkly thread may be obnoxious, but it does yield lovely results!

Thanks!  I learned about working w/ metallic thread in the process (and through the googles).  I'm thinking of writing up a post on it.   

Thanks for looking everyone, and con crit is appreciated!
