I received a beautiful hoop from jexxican!! I just LOVE it! She asked me if I minded if she used a mystery medium, and I thought that sounded like too much fun to pass up. So she needle felted a hoop for me! It's based on a papercutting by Cindy Ferguson, one of my favorite artists. I had seen this cutting before and it's one of my favorite designs of hers. Thank you so much jexxican!

I tried to take pics, but only got two mediocre ones before the batteries died. I'll post one of those and will post a better one on Sat after I get more batteries. Jexxican, feel free to post pics if you don't want to wait that long!



The teal is actaully darker than the pic. It's so pretty!

Great hoop, onegroovyday!  I saw right away where something was hidden but it took a few minutes to figure out just what it was.  Glad I am home alone because when I realized what it was I'm said right out loud 'ah, got it!'   ;D  My family would have thought I was crazy talking to my computer.


Title: Re: Embroidery Hoopla Round 7 Gallery (Send Out Feb 27)
Post by: Pixiefirefly on February 02, 2012 07:35:07 PM
Both hoops are really cool. That needle felting is so cool, I want to try that one of these days!

Post by: LimeRiot on February 02, 2012 08:13:12 PM
What an AWESOME start to our gallery! I adore both of those hoops. Jexxi - I love the technique you used - SO original and SO fabulous. OGD - you know I adore you negative space 'J'. I noticed the hidden note as soon as I saw it.


Title: Re: Embroidery Hoopla Round 7 Gallery (Send Out Feb 27)
Post by: jexxican on February 03, 2012 07:23:33 AM
Hurrah! My hoop was the first up in the gallery! And you all liked it, you really liked it. I'm so happy. It was a lot of fun to make.

You got another J name over here and I'm loving OGDs hooping, as always.

I like how the first 2 hoops we got one good example of each--negative space and silhouette.

I adore that hoop!! I got to see an early glimpse of it :). The owl and tree are kind of out from the rest of the hoop. It's hard to describe.

Lola, if you have that pic you showed me, you should post it too!

Post by: .:.Lola.:. on February 14, 2012 05:29:42 PM
Extra Pics!:
(Front):
(Angle):

The owl silhouette is stumpworked (well sort of- except I just winged it! lol And instead of clipping close to it, I folded the fabric to the back and glued it because it looked tidyer to me). The background is painted, embroidered, then glued over a cardboard circle and glued to the back of the frame. The silhouette is suspended at the front of the frame using clear thread :)

Post by: onegroovyday on February 16, 2012 01:53:11 PM
and the mailman came!!!

PJ you just made my day... no you made my YEAR!!... this has to be the best birthday present EVER!!

EVERYONE needs a hoop like this one.... I'm going to have to lock it up so that all you sneaky little stalking craftsters don't come and take it off my wall.....

really ladies.... I cant tell you how Happy PJ made me.... Not only was it a great birthday present, but I also found out yesterday that I have shingles, and boy oh boy when they say its painful they aren't lying.... the burning in my leg and torso is debilitating at times....

Judy, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.... it is PERFECT.... EXACTALLY what i wanted, kinda like you jumped into my brain!!

I will takes pictures soon, but until then PJ said she would post the ones she took before she mailed it....
and this "dream" hoop took my mind off of it for at least a little while!!



Title: Re: Embroidery Hoopla Round 7 Gallery (Send Out Feb 27)

Gorgeous work!  It is dreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemy.  :)   ;D


Hey, OGD, check with your pharmacy for a good soaking agent, if they hven't alredy given you one. I've had shingles multiple times (UFF DA!) and taking the meds worked great but the bath soaking stuff they gave me was THE BOMB.


Title: Re: Embroidery Hoopla Round 7 Gallery (Send Out Feb 27)

Post by: Robinpich on February 16, 2012 08:17:01 PM
PJ, that is GORGEOUS!
OGD - Happy late Bday and I hope you feel better soon.  Shingles are very painful.  Once you get over them, get a Zoster vaccine.  Everyone should get one (but of course ins won't pay unless you're over 60-ish in the US), but it's so worth it to pay out of pocket.  I know they say once you get them you can't get them again - BALONEY! 
Hope you're better soon though.

Happy birthday groovy gal. I really hope you're feeling better soon.

Lime you are absolutely correct.... THAT HOOP IS SOOOOOOOO ME... it couldnt be any more PERFECT ....PERFECTER.....PERFECTEST....PERFECTMOSTEST  ;)

THANKS for the well wishes everyone, and I hate to say that more spots developed  overnight, I am so worried about getting it on my face....Camelama, Ill have to check on the soaking agent, anything that will help will be way worth it.... Robin, dr said they will give me the Zoster vaccine when this is over!!

well partially true, you can't get them from someone else, but the herpes virus is dormant in your body  after you have chickenpox and it can outbreak multiple times on it's own. My grandma had them so many times, it's no fun.

I received my beautiful hoop from tarmine626 today!
Well she combined...

a Cheshire cat and an Alice and made...


a hoop! The overlapping parts are left unstitched but oh! look at those stitches!


Wait what? This ain't machine embroidery? Yep! That's some neat stitching! Impeccable.
And to think this is her first embroidery piece (she did the "Video Games" cross stiched hoop on my wall (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/RufusMcG/Craftster/2012-02-17_21-14-39_532.jpg) before so I knew she's got skills before :D)...

Thanks so much Martine, I'll try extra hard to make your hoop good :)

Post by: mezcraft on February 17, 2012 07:09:31 PM
Wow, Everyone has been doing such amazing work!

I think the Alice multi silhouette is keen, and such beautiful stitching!
I think that the "dream" is awesome, I bet you are the queen at french knots now! Plus I am curious what your base fabric was? Is that jersey knit?
The Owl dangling silhouette hoop  - I am actually still wrapping my head around the possibilities it presents.

Seriously amazing stuff!

it only took me 3 days, but I finally have pictures of the amazing hoop that pjherbet did for me.....

thanks again Judy, as you can see.... it has it center stage spot on my wall (please excuse the MESS, havent had the chance to put much away lately)



a little closer


and here it is


had to get a close up... look at all those french knots.... holy WOWNESS!!!


Judy.... you are one great hoopstress!!.....

I think that alice hoop is my favorite so far, if only it was in a different color - not a big fan of pink. And that owl one is just awesome too, I love how unique they both are!

And I have received my hoop today. It's really pretty, I put it up in my kitchen for now but will prbably move it to my kids room because it will match very nicely with the decor there and they have no wall art yet. Thank you Robin!

I received BOTH hoops today which cheered me up since i had been feeling under the weather lately. I'm so happy. I swear if these were not mine, I'd be super jealous of the recipient.

First is from tarmine626. She did a Mario themed negative space hoop with tons of tiny french knots. They are all so neat and perfect. Hard to believe she doesn't do much embroidering other than cross stitch.


Added bonus - Thundercats logo! My boyfriend's first response was "can you put that part in its own hoop" because I've been promising to make one for ages. Don't worry though, I'm not going to take apart the hoop!


My second hoop came from sloth003. She painted the fabric and then stitched a cute willow tree with little bunnies sitting beneath it. It doesn't show up too well because of poor lighting, but the background is shimmery which is neat when the sunlight hits it. I don't know how she figured out that I adore willow trees so very much, but it made me so happy to see one in this hoop.


Thank you so much, both of you. I only hope you will like my projects as much as I love these :)

my son LOVED the Mario hoop, and I agree with queenofmarigold, instantly recognisable!.. great work....

and Sloth....the willow tree...wow!!... PERFECT!!....brought back LOTS of memories... we had one in our backyard when I was little, my older brother and his friends would always play in it, and being the 4year younger little sister, he would always tell me to leave him alone.... so I was kinda like the bunnies, just sitting there looking at the tree.... sounds a little sad, but they really are HAPPY thoughts, I looked up to my big brother so much that I was happy just to sit and watch .. ;D...
(now I need to go pin it!)

I just cannot beleive all the talent here!  I am in AWE!  and I feel bad for Sylwa that her hoop wasn't technically a negative space or sillouette.  I was going for a tweed owl sillouette but he looked like he needed eyes and then when I was done, he just looked like a normal owl.   :-\

I'm working on getting a picture taken here, though since I've had to give up on this whole daylight thing I had to bring out the big camera - that in turn means waiting for the battery to recharge ::) But I'm getting there! It'll be worth the wait, it's an excellent piece mezcraft has conjured.

Pugwash, I'm happy you like the mario hoop! and happy your BF likes its back too :D

Thank you all for your nice compliments.
It was a pleasure to make as many french knots, because day by day I felt like seeing the characters come to life et move on the fabric!

The willow tree is so nostalgic for me too, many childhood memories associated with this tree.

And the heart tree is so beautiful too, I like it!

The Mario hope is really cool! You really achieved a feeling of movement with it. The willow tree is also gorgeous - the painted fabric is just plain beautiful!!

Here's the wonderful hoop I got from mezcraft



It's called "melladh's totem", and is based on the TMI swap info page I put on a blog. Birches and blackbirds are both special to me, without any particular reason. It just turned out that way. I love this hoop, it's very "right".

I had to settle for flash photography - even standing three yards back it got oversaturated, so I had to bring down the colors a bit. If it looks weird it's because my screen is adapted for gaming experience, not photography editing. ::)

So anyway, after some rearranging of my wall, here's the updated look!

My schedule and the apartment's office's schedule finally coordinated so I could pick up my hoop from LimeRiot- SO worth the (self-inflicted) delay!



Isn't it gorgeous? I love how she used the striped fabric to give the image of a sunrise. The flowers were inspired by a silhouette of grass I had on my pinterest and I think she totally upstaged the original. :) I love it! Thank you!

I find that all the hoops of this gallery are original and very well done!
luckdragon : I looooooooove your cat at the window! Camelama must be very happy!
bubblegum_phoenix : Mum & baby llamas are so cute!
.:.Lola.:. : this cat looks so sweet that I want to pet your hoop :D
Cherrylime : yes! it's gorgeous!

--------------------

I recieved Average-fan hoop today :



It's silhouettes of japanese koi fish.
As she know that I love Japan, she embroidered with Qween Anne stitches those pretty fish on a hand-died fabric.
Actually it looks like they are swimming in a pond !
Their positions give a good impression of movement.



Thank you very much Average_fan for this so beautiful hoop.
I have already hung it on my new hoopla-wall (I'll show you a picture when I will recieve Pugwash's hoop :))

Ok, so I still haven't had any good daylight hours with Luckdragon's hoop, but I just want folks to know how perfect it is for me.  ;D

First, here it is on my wall...


My kitty art wall! On right right is a collage of my Phoebe cat from a previous swap, and below is a painting from Etsy that is the spitting image of my old cat Cirrus (RIP).

When I opened Luck's package to me, I started crying a bit.  That's how wonderful her hoop is!

Luck took inspiration from a Pinterest item of mine (this embroidery for sale on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/51453754/tapestry-embroidery-fiber-art-handmade) for the landscape out the hoop window, and my Phoebe cat for the kitty silhouette. But what she didn't know is Cirrus, the first love of my life cat, was a window watcher extraordinaire. So much so that I built him his own special padded window perch that my friends called "The Cirrus Altar".

Here he is on his altar:




And now I have Phoebe, Lover of Little Bouncy Birdies in the Trees Outside:


So Luck's choice of a window kitty is PERFECT for me!  It's such a gorgeous hoop, I can't wait to take some great photos of it when I am finally NOT WORKING and actually at home in the daylight and have found my camera.  ::)  It's so beautiful, so well done, and everyone who has seen it so far has raved about it!!!!

I adore it, Luckdragon, and I wish you were here so I could smoosh you in a big bear hug to show you how much I love it! (Ok, so maybe YOU are glad you're not here.... LOL)

One last image ... Cirrus looking out the window at me as I left the house to go to work. What a sad sight to see every morning. Hee. (It's a bad photo of a bad Polaroid that a friend took, I still love it though!)


SEE HOW PERFECT LUCKDRAGON'S HOOP IS?!?!?! THANK YOU THANK YOU! (and no stray green thread in the sky when it got here, hee hee)

The fabric is perfect, and the embroidery so neat !

Now it hangs on my new hoopla-wall, near my "my neighbor Totoro" hoop!!


I'm sooooooo happy to finally have mine!

isn't she cute with her little crocheted(i think?) flower and her beaded accents?

and the second was from loves2experiment:

I received my awesome hoop from Jolyon today!


It's Lady Gaga from the concert in the O2 Arena in '10 - I'm guessing it's from this (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_uCs8adR7GRI/TANv0qW-mZI/AAAAAAAAFQg/MmwAkmBqV2g/s1600/SDC10513.JPG) outfit? :)
I'm such a fan of her (an average-fan the most though hurr durr ;) )

Love it! The colors are a rich purple and dark berry and it fits me so well! And the hoop goes really well with my others hoops:

Though I don't like the layout right now, the way they're hung up.
But I'll change this when I moved in with my boyfriend - next swap should better have a theme where I can sneak in his favorites so he'll have a hoop for himself too ;)

Again, thanks Jolyon for your awesome hoop! ♥

I received from Canamharris and I love my hoop!! One of the things that I told her I liked was squirrels. We have a squirrel in my yard that we feed and it's almost like a pet (we probably have the only squirrel in Canada that stays fat all winter long!) So I was really happy with the squirrel theme of my hoop!

I abolutely love the kind of Victorian feel of the hoop and the stitches are super well done, I'm very impressed at the detail work. And the beads add a nice touch!
Here is the hoop!


And a close-up picture:


Thank you very much Canamharris, it's awesome and I love it, I'll find a nice spot for it on my living room wall!

Oh, and on the hoop I made to Canamharris:
Oh my, is that cross stitched on?  If so, that's a huge amount of work!


Yes, it is cross-stitched! It took a long time, but I hadn't cross-stitched in a while, so I loved it anyway!

What's that lovely background fabric, you say? No fabric at all - that's crazy, intricate blackwork...



I think I would have gone insane doing all those tiny stitches! We also did a personal swap and combined our postage, and these are the beautiful things she sent me -

A Coraline doll, complete with creepy, shiny button eyes, and

Oh wow, that gear hoop and all the blackwork is AMAZING!  I can't imagine how long that took to make.


(we probably have the only squirrel in Canada that stays fat all winter long!)

Nope, we have a squirrel in Canada that stays fat too! and we named ours - a number of years ago we noticed a squirrel around and started feeding him and then as a family we decided he needed a name but we couldn't agree on what it should be so we all wrote our favorite name on a paper, put them into a hat and pulled one out - his name is Fearless.  This year's is probably Fearless the 8th but as long as one appears every winter he will be Fearless to us.

The bird hoop that I think is cross stitched is gorgeous!
The gears/blackwork is AMAZING. I can't imagine sitting still long enough to stitch that.  But it's simply amazing.
the cat in the hat is prob one of my most favorites of all - I have 2 neices that are 22 and 19, my daughter is right in between at age 20.  When they were about 7,8, & 10, we named then Cat in the hat, thing 1 and thing 2.  We even dressed them up at halloween.  they still call each other that from time to time.  and oh the messes they would make  ;D

Another hoop from Melladh - I know that melladh's work is always so intricate ( I have been blessed with her as a partner before!) but I was really blown away by the quality of the teeny tiny delicate little french knots... George Seurat eat your heart out.... The image is from my pinterest which was done originally in paper.. this is so much cooler. Thank you!

look at those little teeny knots! She is crazy awesome!

Since my partner received, and I'm being incredibly impatient about it, here's the hoop I made for sinellia.



I had done about half of the background in yellow before I realized that sinellia had listed that as the one color she didn't want. Hah! The background is only done in half stitch, so it was totally fixable.

Paleangellex, that hoop is so beautiful for the spring time.

So many pretty hoops!

My partner's dad has a jackalope head mounted on the wall over the bar in his house and so many people have offered him ridiculous amounts of money to buy it. I also sent home jackalope postcards when visiting him in Wyoming. They're kinda like drop bears... so many people aren't QUITE sure if they're real... ha ha.

I had forgotten how time consuming cross stitch is!

Since my partner received, and I'm being incredibly impatient about it, here's the hoop I made for sinellia.

I'm so sorry ladies!  Since both of you were so kind to post photos of the lovely hoops you sent me, I'll just post a couple of photos of the hoops on my wall.  :)


bottom left is PaleAngelLex's hoop (light blue with butterflies) and NH822's hoop is the cross-stitched butterflies on the right!


behold, my entire hoopla wall and all of its glory!!

thanks so much ladies! <3

My partner, sloth003, received this a few weeks ago and asked me to post a photo since she's without internet until after moving. I don't know how I managed to misplace my camera, but I've found it and now I can post!

I wrapped the hoop in a contrasting yellow fabric, though it looks a little green in the photo.

Yes he is quilted! The hoop was 10" ( my other option was a 6", and it just looked too small :)

I have been a bad partner. I finally dug the cord for my camera out of my pile of stuff I don't use. I took pictures of my hoop, but had forgot to put the card in.

Anyway! Here's the fantastic hoop I got from sinellia. I love the blue fabric she used, and of course, I love my bird :)

I have received!! PearliePie has sent me the most amazing tree hoop, I will try to get a pic up as soon as I get home from work. I seriously thought it was a felt applique, but it it all stitched :O

If you have some pics PearliePie please put some up, I dont think my photos could ever show all its amazing detail ;)

I love the bird hoop!! It's both dark and bright all at the same time, if that makes any kind of sense :).

kwiltykate, YAY! I'm glad the hoops are making their way across the planet. Can't wait to see what you received.

Here is the hoop I received from Pearliepie! On first glance, I thought it was a felt applique..but no, that is all embroidery!! The leaves are a shiny thread (rayon?) and the tree trunk is all chain stitched.

Isn't it awesome??



And this one shows the texture a *little* bit better :)



Thanks so much Pearl, it is already one of my favourite hooplas :D

I'm so glad you like it! The leaves are stitched with DMC light effects thread (http://www.dmc-usa.com/Products/Needlework-Threads/Embroidery-Threads/Light-Effects.aspx), which is a huge pain to stitch with but the look is SO worth the trouble!

I'll be back later with a picture of my lovely bunny hoop on my hoop wall!

Well Average_fan and I have been going through a stressful couple of weeks/months thanks to Royal Mail.  She sent me a hoop Royal mail dutifully returned it (very slowly) to sender without doing the all important delivery bit.
However, my swap partner turned out to be a force to be reckoned with because she turned out this delightful hoop for me as a replacement.
It is of Red Riding hood or Rottkappchen, which is my partners favourite German tale.  I like the Brothers Grimm tales a lot.  So this hoop will be very dear to me too.
So on to the stitching

Look at how wonderfully furry the wolf looks and I think the stitches capture his bad intents perfectly.  Meanwhile red riding hood has a beautifully stitched and spangled (beads) cloak.  I absolutely love it and cant wait to get it up on the wall.
Thank you so much Average_fan for this beautiful hoop and for your patience and ability to create another lovely design for me.

The first hoop just arrived yesterday. Well not exactly at my doorstep, but my mailman at least put a slip in the box to tell me where to fetch it.
Royal Mail said the addressee isn't none and wrote "Not xxx road", but the address was correct. Stupid mail!  >:(
But at least the other hoop arrived correctly and quickly!

Despite my shenanigangs with the mail, I'll subtly hint for a next round too ;)
