Annchen, that should be from me! How exciting! But how odd that you would receive before Koreena.

Fishstix, yay! I was worried you'd be like "Bobbins? Ugh!" But they were on your Pinterest so I thought it would be good. So far I've done mostly supplies for the giveaway prizes and I think they are well received.

After two trips to the post office I could finally pick up my package. Thank you so much! We got company over so I haven't taken any pictures yet, but I love my hoops!

No, I totally loved them!  It's one of those things where I was like, well I have one, I can make it, I shouldn't buy any more.  But it's so much nicer to not have to use the same one over and over; they're great!  Cheesy

I know what you mean. My machine came with 4 and I made do and then 1 broke and I made do again but when I bought your bobbins I was like "F it, I need more!" so I bought a warehouse sale of 50 for mine. I am already loving having them! Myt only issue was getting motivated to look for them. I'm glad I could help you out.

I was hoping for some "on the wall" pictures of the hoops, but we got some unexpected visitors this weekend. I only have half a day of work tomorrow, however, so hopefully I can sort out pictures then.

Just wondering if Littlebluegirl has received my parcel yet?  Huh I havent heard anything back from her yet!!

Sorry I havent posted any pics of my gorgeous parcels, life has been soooooo stupidly busy for the past month or so, and as I work full time, but the time I get home in the evening its too dark to take any decent pictures! Lets hope the sun is out this weekend so I can get some pictures of my goodies!  Tongue

Look who finally received  Grin Grin

I am SO SORRY for taking this long to receive & post, Jexxican~ I've been so busy with work that I haven't been able to get to the post office for ages.  I actually got a bit of a lecture from the postie, because I have a tiny box & when I receive my packages sit in the back until I pick them up. Oops  Undecided

AAAANYWAY~  Check out my beautiful, beautiful new hoopS!!  That's right ~ not one, but TWO fantastic hoops have made it my way  Grin


They are so gorgeously crafted & just... Happy Smiley  I was having the worst day when I went to pick them up & they actually brought a happy tear to my eye because they cheered me up so instantly!  I can't wait to hang them on the wall in my apartment, where I will see them every morning when I wake up & when I get home after a long day of work.   Wink

They are seriously beautiful and these pictures don't do them justice, but let me try to give you a bit of a better idea:


Check out the detail & perfect stitching!!


The fabrics & hoops that you chose for me are awesome, too~ Thank you again Jexxican, so happy you claimed me for this swap Smiley
 
*edit* I almost forgot to mention that these hoops are even BETTER than the ones that I had on my Pinterest  Wink  Not kidding~ Go look! http://pinterest.com/koreenakoreena/things-i-want-to-make-or-have-made-for-me/

Jexxican, I haven't been able to take any good pictures. Do you have any? Otherwise I'll post what I have when I can. I'm still plotting the perfect place to hang them. Smiley

Sure, OK.
Based on these birds I made Annchen these hoops:

It was my first time wrapping hoops in ribbon and I love how that part came out.

I agree! The ribbon was a very nice touch, and I love the colours you picked =)

And your picture is much better than the one I managed to take before leaving for spain...
