It's another embroidery/cross stitch/multimedia/etc. hoopla swap! This time the theme is WORDS - WITH OR WITHOUT WORDS. The idea comes from a lovely chat in the discussion thread. Basically, you list at least 5 of your favourite words, quotes, or phrases, and your partner interprets in a hoopla design - with or without any actual words.

- Please only send your completed hoop. No extras.
- There are no hoop size requirements for this round
- Your hoop must fit the theme
- You may opt to have 2 partners. See notes below for more info.*
- Posting to the thread is required at least once every other week. Once the swap starts, I'll post a check-in question on alternate 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

We are getting started! Some business:

1) I'm looking for a co-organizer to help track some of the packages! I'm assuming this will be an over 24 person swap. Smiley

2) If anyone has a photo of a hoop they've already made/received/etc. that would fit the theme and would work as the main image for this swap, let me know!

I have a "twat" and "cunt" hoop that would fit the theme, haha. Don't think you want those on your front page, though. I will see how this weekend goes before I sign up. So much drama!

I've been waiting for this, my very first hoopla swap. After the huge enchanted forest swap ( I sent 3 mediums and 2 smalls )I'm so glad this can be just for the one or two hooplas.
Will send my Q. In soon

Lol. Though they don't bother me, I don't know if those are main page hoops! Wink

oh I love this theme! I am on vacation (and not taking craft supplies) until the end of June though, so I have to decide if I can feasibly crank out a hoop in 11 days. Also I have to go back to work after being gone for 2 weeks... That's totally doable right?!
