[This time, posted in the right thread!  Shocked]

I had a fun trip to the mailbox today -- when I got there, I had not one, but two super awesome hoops just waiting to be taken home.  They are totally different but I absolutely love them both!

First up, ZidishaLuxe sent me a hoop on the theme of Moroccan, Turkish or Middle Eastern textile or tile design.  I was totally blown away by this one -- she has an absolutely beautiful stitching technique, and it's just perfectly executed as a design!  I love the colors and the pattern on this piece and I even love the framing, which looks like a vintage metal frame. 

Second, I have this really sassy arrow themed piece from Lady Pistola -- I love the style of this directional arrow and there is a really nice use of stitch direction (and these stitches are beautifully tiny and even - so awesome!) I think this arrow will make me aspire to a hip-ness I don't possess.  Grin

There is such an amazing talent in this swap - it's truly inspirational!  Thanks guys for your waaaay awesome hoops!

Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to your new best friend.
She knows all the best nightspots, but is totally up for just saying home and doing mud masks and pedi's together. With wine and music, of course!
Please meet Flo:

She's perfect! So perfect, in fact, that RetroGypsy left her a little, uh, exposed

Isn't that great? If I ever have a backside as nice as this I'm leaving it open too! (hehehe!)

Here she is on my wall

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

I received my hoop from Interrobam today. The theme was sideshow. She chose to go with siamese twins and I love the results.

Isn't it cute? Notice the snake, Max, is also "two-faced". I think it's wonderful. Thanks for choosing me!!!!

I'm glad you like the hoop! I was actually going to put "two headed" but it was too long, and I realized "two faced" was not only shorter, but funnier.

Also that arrow hoop is amazing.  Shocked

I definitely like "two faced" better than "two headed". Flo is amazing, and she does have a great backside. Wink

And finally here are pictures of the first two hoops I received. From amnesia:

And from zidishaluxe:

Cthulhu is stitched on some really awesome imprinted felt that doesn't show up well in the picture.

Two very different kinds of underwater creatures. Smiley
