Felt, patchwork, beads, ships, gardens, siamese twins (I know I'm forgetting so many awesome creations, and I apologize for that).... but my head is spinning with all the amazing artwork here!  SO many different ideas, media, designs, interpretations.  This is seriously wonderful.

The beaded hoop is gorgeous.  I've beaded enough to know that took quite a bit of time and patience and it turned out perfectly.  At some point I'll have to have a beaded hoop of some sort for my hoopla wall.

I received from tonistagg!  We had a psychic thing going on, and sent/received only 2 days apart Smiley  But anyway, best hoop ever:

She embroidered my kitty, Meowy cat!  And it looks just like her, down to her stripey trail!  Here's another pic with the model, totally uninterested in the hoop and meowing for pettins:

I love the way it fits perfectly in the circular hoop.  Thank you so much, tonistagg- I love it!

I second the sentiment that this really has been the best gallery ever.  I've wisted tons of stuff, and can't wait for round 2!  I also wish I had other craftsters to craft with Wink

If anyone wants to try adding beading, it was pretty easy.  I couched the beads as described here: http://beaddoll.freewebsitehosting.com/Embroidery.html  I also reinforced the muslin with an extra piece of felt in the back so the weight of the beads wouldn't make the fabric sag.  Oh, and if I did this again, I'd probably use 15/0 beads instead of 11 to get better detail, but I still like the way it came out a lot Smiley

That kitty hoop is just adoreable!!!!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Awwwwww!  It's SOOO cute, and the hoop really does capture kitty's likeness.  Excellent job!
