I made this for my partner in the latest Embroidery Hoopla swap (she hasn't posted pictures yet but I really wanted to show it off so I decided to make it's own thread.)

The theme for this round was - not just thread - so you had to incorporate other things on the hoop.  It took me awhile to find a picture of the Penny Farthing that I could actually turn into a stitching.  For my 'other' items I used felt marker for the bicycle frame, felt for the seat (gotta have it comfy) and the part I'm most proud of was the bead work for the front tire.  Even though I'm not into this type of bicycle, I had a hard time parting with it.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
