I want folks to know the map is not my own design, but is copied from the map in Jasper Fforde's book and printed on fabric, then stitched.  The only original part is "Pratchett's Prairie."     Obviously I had to do the "fantasy" part of the map not only because of Noodlebug's love of fantasy but because of "Mervyn Peake Peak"   Cheesy  It was hard to narrow the map down to a small enough area to fit on a hoop!

YOU GUYS!!!! I can't even handle how much I love my hoop from Abbeeroad right now!!!

Here's the first thing I saw when I opened the package was the back and ..."Spooky NJ"



I flip it over and BAM!!! STRAIGHT UP AWESOME!!!



Zoom in for a close up of the spooky jersey goodness...skulls, gravestones and black cats!!!!
 


Thank you soooo much Abby, I couldn't have imagined anything better!!!!

I don't even care that it's past 10pm right now, I broke out my nails and hammer and hung it up. I am now basking in the glory of all my hoops!!  Grin

Ooh, neat! Spooky + a place is a great combination in my mind. And I'm a big fan of your collection! I see that fingerprint like I have pinned (may make myself one of mine), a claddagh, and... a heart made of bats? Cool.

I bet I have (maybe had, I might have deleted it since I received that hoop) that same fingerprint hoop pinned. I got mine in a previous swap that I had it listed. I also got the claddagh and bats from swap partners. The bat one I especially love because it was the first embroidery attempt my partner made and it fits me so well and she did such a great job!

I seriously love swaps!!

Love that fantasy map, such a wonderful idea (now I want one with all my favourite fantasy places....hmmm...) and the stitching looks so perfect! The mermaid is stunning too, even all on her own she would be a perfect work of art!

Everything else is sublime too, wow, this is such a talented group and I am so happy I got to participate in this swap (and hoping round 11 will be just around the corner!)

The spooky new jersey is very clever, and very cute! pennydreadfull - I loveyour hoopla wall, and I really hope to have an amazing one of my own one day! When I receive my hoop (checking the mailbox every day!) I will have an amazing grand total of ... two. Yep, really ready for round 11.
