My hoop from JoyfulClover was waiting for me when I got home from my trip today! It had quite the journey across the whole USA.

I'm totally speechless.

For one thing, this isn't an 8" hoop - it's a 9" hoop! That inner border is right where an 8' hoop would really fit.

The stitchwork is so tight and regular! The dark grey of the minotaur is like carpet, the hair could almost be braids appliqued to the surface. And look at the teeny tiny seed stitches filling out the bull's head in the exact color of the fabric.

The subtle gradations in the skintone are so perfectly judged. Plus, maybe this is a small thing, but the hoop itself is painted and the back of the thing is beautifully finished too - I wish I could retroactively put those finishing touches on the one I sent, haha.

It's inspired by this picture that I had saved on my pinterest:

So worth the wait!

I'm so glad you like the tree, Clover! Halfway through I started thinking, this is so bright, does it still count as muddy colors? So Im pleased to hear it did scratch your non-primary itch, lol.

Everyone else's hoops are so lovely. I love the fairy-tale look of the castle, where the repetition over the lines gives the whole thing that shimmery holographic look. And that cloud of french knots on the blue-haired girl! Everybody did such a beautiful job.

I can't wait for my hoop to find its way through its long post office detour, I'm on the edge of my seat.

I'm plugging along - it's definitely the second-guessing-yourself phase of the project, but I believe in Past Me who had a good plan, haha. Still anticipating sending out on time, fingers crossed.

I've got all my supplies and just started stitching today. So far so good...?!? This is pretty different from other hoops I've done so hopefully it will all come together somehow, haha.

I haven't done a swap for a while, but I was just thinking I'm in the mood for a hoop!

Thanks for PMing me to take a look at this. I'm interested but I can't commit for sure until I find out what's going on with a personal thing this month. Hopefully the timing will work out but if not have a spooky time. Smiley

It's been a couple of months since I was in a swap, I've been so busy. But I messed up my ankle so I have more free time in the evenings for the next few weeks, lol. Perfect time to do an ATC! Smiley
