Thanks to luckdragon and pennydreadfull for letting me post their place-themed hoops!

Our Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432208.0

Sign-up date range: March 5 - March 14, 2014

It's another needlework (embroidery, cross stitch, etc?) hoopla swap! This time the theme is PLACES, which you can interpret any way you see fit. I'm sure there will be lots of interesting hoops in this one.

- Please only send your completed hoop. No extras.
- There are no hoop size requirements for this round
- Your hoop must be "place" themed - whatever that means to you and your partner
- You may opt to have 2 partners. See notes below for more info.*
- Posting to the thread is required at least once a week. Once the swap starts, I'll post a check-in question on Fridays, so you can check-in by answering that if you'd like.
- Have fun!

*Selecting Two Partners
If you opt for having two partners then you will be paired up twice. This will require that you communicate, craft for and send a hoop to two different partners. See the example below...
Person A - 2 partners
Person B - 1 partner
Person C - 1 partner
Person D - 1 partner
Person E - 1 partner
Person A <> Person B
Person A <> Person C
Person D <> Person E

I'm filling out my questionnaire, I think the places theme will inspire us to lots of interesting creations.  So glad to have a hoopla swap again!
