I made this little hoopla for the OTT Winter Holiday swap for La Chapa.  One of her themes was for something with evergreen boughs/pine cones.  I found a stenciled image of pine cones which I thought was cool and translated that onto cotton muslin as an embroidered piece.  It was placed on a 4 inch hoop, so as to fit in the OTT dimensions, and I decorated the hoop with candy striped ribbon I tinted to give a vintage look, and some real pine cones I found near my house when walking the dog. 





I really liked it.  It was a piece that I really enjoyed making, and as such, I was able to start and finish in a day - you know when you are so enjoying doing something, time flies, and you can't put it down - this was one of those, so it was consequently hard to give away too!

Some more notes and pics on it, on my blog.

What do you think?  Comments and criticism welcome as always.
