I'm hoping to finish my hoop this weekend and get it sent out on Monday. I just have a few more stitches to do, and then the back. Smiley

I ended up investing in Sublime Stitches hoop set.  I thought it was a good value!

How is the quality of those hoops? I'd be willing to buy that set if it is a higher quality than I can find around here, with really flimsy wood and often, very uncircular hoops. (apparently, uncircular isn't a word but you know, on the bigger hoops, they are more like uneven ovals when they are supposed to be circular.

I like them, and they're comparable to what I can get from Michaels.  But they aren't the prettiest that are available (unfinished wood).

A letter and a half to go and I'm done! Well, then washing and backing and then done, but the hard part is almost over!

I was on the moon at the time.....with Steve.

I attempted some in car stitching the other day. I don't think it went as well as planned. Darn those Montana roads, they were very bumpy! Hopefully I can carve out some non car stitching time to finish this hoop up!

Stitching complete!

Now all I have to do is finish the back, and package that baby up, and then drive around with it in my car for a few days waiting for me to remember that going to the post office is necessary. (I'm sorry Mezcraft, it's an inevitability) Good thing I'm done stitching before I thought I'd be!

Wishing parenting duties would stop interupting my stitching time.  I'm getting there, just not as quickly as I want to. Roll Eyes

All of a sudden I'm essentially done. Just need to finish off the back. At first I wasn't particularly pleased with it at all, but when I got back to it and could see the full instead of the details, it's suddenly pretty cool. Cheesy I think I like it!

Text is done! [Omitted] is partially done, then all I'll have left is the back (which is not my strong suit, so it may take a few attempts).
