Thanks!
I really need to work on doing the satin stitch with those great little stitches that fills the area neatly and snuggly, like your butterfly Ludi. And yes, there are two whites on the tub. *blush* I work in a not-so-bright room at night after the kids have gone to bed and it wasn't until the next day that I'd noticed the difference. I dropped the trailing leaves down the side where the two whites met to try and disguise it but it may always bother me. It's one of those "oopses" you chalk up to a learning moment. Ah well, we create and then we move on.

I almost always use multiple tones of the same color, so what I would have done with the oopsie white is go back over each area with the other color of white, to make a blend. I make lots of oopsies, but cover them up with lots more stitches!  Cheesy

Oh that is a clever idea. I will file that away for the next time. Thank you for the tip!

So here is my spring hoop.  I had intended to use the hoop I was making for kittykill for this months challenge but that didn't work out!  So I made this one for my partner in the Spring Swap.  I just sent it to her and she hasn't received but I checked and it doesn't appear she follows this thread.... but just in case Camezzo don't look!!!!!!!



I got the pattern from Polka and Bloom
