Allrighty - Well my friends it is a go:

Be Prepared for ( drum roll please!!!) Embroidery Hoopla Swap Round 9: Not Just Thread
Our Team consists of myself and Homerof2 and goldfishpollywog as our co-orgs.
The dates are going to be: Sign ups - January 26th - February 9 - Sendouts Mar 5.

So put your thinking and fun crazy caps on because this is could totally be a really interesting swap: So you can embroidery or crossstitch in your hoop but you also have to incorporate something that isn't just thread into the hoopla. It doesn't have to be terribly complex, so begginers don't feel intimidated, you can do it!   
So let's do some brainstorming here: What can we add into our hoops?
beads
buttons
felt
snaps
shells
little mirrors
paper
photograph?
toys
spoons/ forks
wire
fabric

What else? More ideas?

I just have to share what my hoopla wall looks like right now... Angry



That horrible and adorable little furry demon that we added to the pack last fall is the getting-on-top-of-things type, and she's decided that the best way to get off the high shelf (which she isn't supposed to be on to begin with) is to sort of skid down along the hoopla pinboard.

All the hoops are safe, they just have to live in a pile on my craft table until she gets bored of that shelf. (it's not a sleeping-on shelf, it's a get-on-mommy's-nerves shelf)

But still. She's lucky she's cute. Angry

I have TWO of those!  One is the sweetest thing ever, and I think she knows it(innocent eyes when getting into trouble), the other is a beast and a terror at times and he thinks the water bottle (that squirts him when I'm crafting) has a mind of it's own.
