In preparation of the Tolkien swap opening on June 1st I made a hobbit based hoop.



I adore all things Tolkien and I have recently moved to a new location. I have a ton of bare walls in my new abode and I'm tired of staring at all the blank.

So I spent the last week stitching like mad. I saw the image this is based off of online but could not find it again to save my life so it's mostly done from memory.

I don't do a lot of embroidery. The only stitch I've really used is a split stitch before this piece. It has several flaws, but it was great practice and I really like the finished piece.

Here's a more detailed shot:

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
