I'm interested, but would depend on the timing. Is 4" the maximum size or are we going with all of the hoops 4"/10cm?

i think they should all be 4", so everyone is giving and receiving the same thing.

Interested!  But wondering if it has to be in a hoop, or if it can just be a finished round shape?  I'm not certain I'd like the hoops for my own work....

i think the nature of the swap sort of lends itself to being in a hoop, but i'm sure you could discuss it with your partner if you sign up Smiley

i was thinking that a fun and manageable swap for those of us without STACKS of crafting time (hi, i have a toddler!) would be a single 4" embroidery hoop swap.

it'd be open for any and all forms of embroidery, and even applique if people wanted, the only firm guideline would be the hoop size.

i would probably want to keep it to a limited number of participants, just so that it wasn't too hectic to organise (did i mention the toddler?).

i'm including a couple of pictures of 4" pieces i've done myself, just for some examples...

(these are all my original designs)

is anyone interested?

hmm - i thought i'd already posted this, but iaccidentally did it on the wrong thread. my wee boy's been sick for the last couple of days, and we're all a bit sleep deprived and crazy-eyed in this house at the moment.

this is the stitchery that i did for gamemom42

it's similar to her pin, but not identical (pin here: http://pinterest.com/pin/914862397035813/ ).
i had fun making it, because it's not the kind of thing i normally do.
hope you all like it too Smiley

now that gamemom42's received from me, i thought i'd share a photo.

this is the pin i claimed: http://pinterest.com/pin/914862397035813/
and it definitely ended up being a LARGE claim (i am so bad at judging how long crafts take, and always underestimate Tongue )

i tried to make it similar, but not identical, and this is how it turned out:
