I received an awesome hoop from CherryLime a few days ago!! It couldn't be more 'me' Smiley!

The texture and dimension in person is really cool!!

Thank you so much, CherryLime!! It was great swapping with you.

okay. FINALLY! i'm posting pictures! i got both my hoops AGES ago and things have been so crazy i'm just now stealing a little time to show off my goodies from this round! and let me tell you my two partners were on some kind of psychic vibe this round!  Cheesy the first hoop i recieved was from titanimhip:

isn't she cute with her little crocheted(i think?) flower and her beaded accents?

and the second was from loves2experiment:

i love the patchwork background and the black-on-black detailing!

and here they are at home on my needlework wall!

thanks so much, ladies! i love them both! i'm so sorry it took me so long to post pictures!  Grin

Woo! I got my hoop from bambii8899!

I really need to get around to moving my hoopla wall to my living room. This, along with my other hoops, need to be in a more public area.Cheesy

I received my awesome hoop from Jolyon today!

It's Lady Gaga from the concert in the O2 Arena in '10 - I'm guessing it's from this outfit? Smiley
I'm such a fan of her (an average-fan the most though hurr durr Wink )

Love it! The colors are a rich purple and dark berry and it fits me so well! And the hoop goes really well with my others hoops:

Though I don't like the layout right now, the way they're hung up.
But I'll change this when I moved in with my boyfriend - next swap should better have a theme where I can sneak in his favorites so he'll have a hoop for himself too Wink

Again, thanks Jolyon for your awesome hoop! ♥

I received from Rousseline! I love it! I cannot wait to hang it on my hoopla wall! If only I could find the darn missing hammer! (ugh)

(sorry for the slightly weird color! hubby took the pic for me on his iphone!)

Oh my, is that cross stitched on?  If so, that's a huge amount of work!

Needing an on-line break ... I'll be back later in 2018.

I received from Canamharris and I love my hoop!! One of the things that I told her I liked was squirrels. We have a squirrel in my yard that we feed and it's almost like a pet (we probably have the only squirrel in Canada that stays fat all winter long!) So I was really happy with the squirrel theme of my hoop!

I abolutely love the kind of Victorian feel of the hoop and the stitches are super well done, I'm very impressed at the detail work. And the beads add a nice touch!
Here is the hoop!

And a close-up picture:

Thank you very much Canamharris, it's awesome and I love it, I'll find a nice spot for it on my living room wall!

Oh, and on the hoop I made to Canamharris:
Oh my, is that cross stitched on?  If so, that's a huge amount of work!

Yes, it is cross-stitched! It took a long time, but I hadn't cross-stitched in a while, so I loved it anyway!

All these beautiful hoops! Everybody has done such neat things Smiley

I am so sorry bubblegum_phoenix - events have conspired against me every time I tried to upload pictures! I received my hoop a (few) days ago, and here it is!

What's that lovely background fabric, you say? No fabric at all - that's crazy, intricate blackwork...

I think I would have gone insane doing all those tiny stitches! We also did a personal swap and combined our postage, and these are the beautiful things she sent me -

A Coraline doll, complete with creepy, shiny button eyes, and

A pair of perfect fingerless gloves. They're so comfy and I can't wait until it's cold enough to wear them!

Thanks so much bubblegum_phoenix Smiley

IIIIIII made it myself!!!

Wowsers I haven't looked on here in a bit! So much amazing work! That cross stitched bird is absolutely gorgeous. Totally wicked.

I had to look in really closely with the gears and the pattern that is jaw dropping awesome.

The Squirrel's colours are wicked and the design is really sweet too!
