I made these for PenelopeWaits in the Ongoing Pinterest Swap in October. This is another package I never heard whether it was received or not. Sad But these were fun! I worked on them in public even, love that! The 3 letters are for her, her "wife" I think she said, and their adopted son. 5 inch hoops. They were finished when I sent them, I promise. ETA: They are all done on the same fabric, the 2nd picture gives the best coloring of that.



Also, the picture uploading has gotten a lot faster! Thanks Craftster!

Cheesy Thanks Wendiek. Hearing things are appreciated seems to be a really big part of making things for me, which is a realization I just had while reading your comment. I guess that's why I don't make for myself as much, eh?

They are so lovely!  I love the background fabric--very elegant!

My favorite is the first one...so subtle and calm...nice work...and you were so generous to do 3...I do hope they made it to your swap partner, even if she has not let you know yet.

You're welcome! And I agree, getting appreciation for what you've made is a HUGE part of crafting (well if that made any sense...) I do make things for myself, but I still get appreciation of my family for it, haha!

You could make something for yourself and I will give you appreciation for it?! Haha! Maybe it works?  Smiley
