When participating in the places hoopla swap, I decided to make Chameleon Hound a wild west theme hoop. I picked up Stitcher's Revolution: Wild West iron-on transfer and selected a neat little moonshine design. My husband, the western novel writer, approved of the design.



For pinkmichk, I decided to use the Down the Rabbit Hole theme. I had so many ideas. A spiral with a rabbit at the end, a close up of Alice following the rabbit, Alice falling. But I thought those ideas had more to do with the characters so I thought about the rabbit hole as a place. I kept seeing a keyhole in my head, like someone looking through a window to a whole new place, almost a portal. Here is what I came up with.



The tight satin stitches were a little tricky for me, so I used the unicorn hoop I received from Onyxnox.




I made this cute little scissors fob for my facebook swap friend. It's a little sawdust filled pincushion made of aida. The ribbon can be looped around a pair of scissors.

Those moonshine bottle are awesome, and the stitching is super clean!
Love the keyhole. That's a neat idea to fan out from a negative image.

Coolness!
