hello, needlework boards! this hoop is based on a doodle i did a while back. i always liked how it turned out, so i figured i'd do it in a hoop! this hoop is very small, i think a 2 or 3 incher, and was just the right size. this is my first hoop, and i love the result!

trying to get a good picture of the depth:

blurry picture for scale:

this is also the first time i tried to do backing! i didn't google it first, and as a result my magazine picture backing did not go well. i didn't stuff it, nor did i attach some kind of hook to hang it from. i just tried to stab the pin i was hanging it on through the paper. bad choice.

and, of course, obligatory wall shot (i don't currently have a hoopla wall, and i'm excited for july, when i'll finally be of age to do a hoopla swap!):

thanks for checking it out! comments and criticisms much encouraged, as this is my first hoop.

What a great first hoop! It's a cool design, especially since it's an original drawn by you. Your stitching looks great.

 Cheesy Great doodle and first hoop! If you'd be interested, I'd love to do a personal swap with you.  I know my step-daughter would be game too...she just turned 14 and has started swapping hoopla's with me.  She is doing her first personal swap right now actually.  She is always excited when I get on board with the on-going hoopla swap and wants to participate, but is too young.  Message me if you'd be interested and we'll make it happen.  Wink

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
