Hello Craftsters!!

After making the Stark house towel, I decided to make Greyjoy as well. I love the design of the Greyjoy house so made myself a creative and colorful hoop. I tried to trace the design as well as possible (I skipped a step and used my computer as a light box) and I didn't bother to erase the lines either (sooo lazy). Anyway, with the tentacles that were in the design, instead of embroidering them, I used french knots (first time to really use french knots, so pardon the unevenness).

I had lots of fun with the curves and I took some liberty with the colors.
