I made this for a recent MOH swap for crazyda79.  It's a wee little hoop and not as impressive as some of the entries I have seen, but I am rather proud of it. 

I had a small oval hoop, which I woodburned to decorate on the outside and added the swap information on the inside.  I took a mottled blue cotton, which I felt looked a bit like a summer sky with wispy clouds, drew the dandelion head and seeds on, and used green a few browns, grays, and ecru thread to embroider it.  I used some layers of white felt to pad it a bit before finishing the back with purple felt.

This is so pretty! The dandelion is very realistic looking. I love the decoration on the hoop, that is a great touch.

It's so sweet, and the woodburned hoop makes it extra special.

Don't discredit yourself, Nox, this is fabulous! No such thing as "not as good as" here on Cster, right?
