This is my second Allons-y hoop that I've made in a swap. This one is kickin' it with katpac now. Grin I may need to make one for myself soon.

I used satin floss on a cotton background.



And accented it with clear glass seed beads.



Thanks for looking. Cheesy

My first one can be seen here:

I used three stitches, satin stitch for the thick parts of the words, split stitch for the thin lines and then a back stitch for framing my satin stitching.  I just tacked the beads on with a loop.  The floss is satin floss and I loved the way it turned out, but it was not my friend while I was stitching.  Wink

Thanks everyone! I was really happy with how it turned out.

Everyone's kind words since I've joined have really sparked my deep love for embroidery. I know I wouldn't be making so many hoops without y'all.  Grin  (I have claimed three more embroideries to finish in swaps to be done in the next two weeks. Cheesy )

This is SO pretty and I love that you used a perfect shade of TARDIS blue.

Sigh, if only I could get the Silence to have you make me one too...then you forgot you did....then you have weird hashmarks everywhere....
I digress.

I, too, want to tell you how gorgeous this is!  The stitching is nice, but the subtle addition of the beads is beautiful!  I really think you should do more of this!
