I thought I'd share some of the projects that I completed for Christmas in 2010. Cheesy

First, a Kirby's Epic Yarn hoop. I was not totally happy with this one. I think the fabric colors are a too dark, and Kirby isn't exactly round. It was my first time couching. My friend seemed to like it, though!

The back:

Secondly, a Scott Pilgrim hoop, based on the video game. This was actually the first one I did, and you can tell- my stitches aren't as neat as they could be. I did some tinting on this with colored pencils, which worked really well. I like the shading on this one a lot.

The back:

Next, a quote from Dragon Age, along with a rose. The gryphon in the background is colored pencils again, as well as the shading on the rose. I really like how this one turned out!

The back:

The last of the hoops is my very favorite. I freehanded the little dog, and she looks just like my friends' dog Dixie! The leaves are felt.

The back:

All of the hoops were wrapped with a (somewhat) coordinated ribbon, and the backs are finished with felt.

Thanks for looking and suffering through my blurry pictures!

Nice Job.
I like the tinting on the Scott Pilgrim hoop, but the tree is my favorite. The dog is so cute.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

Kirby is adorable! Love the button sun. All of them are wonderful, great detail on the back.
My favorite is the tree too, love the flow of the lines and the 3-D leaves Smiley
