PromisedHeartbrk: I love how tight the center is, flaring out into less densely packed stitches. The embelishments are just the right amount, and I appreciate you wrapped the hoop as well for that final finish. The color selection of lavender and green is one of my personal favorites. And all those French knots?! To die for!

LeepFeetFirst: the white on black is incredibly striking. I like your judicious and effective use of fill stitch, as well as back stitch. I don't use back stitch often (I'm a hardcore stem stitch girl...sooo forgiving), but I tend to appreciate it most with high contrast colors to show off the tiny stitch length.

I think this might be my most favorite swap gallery I've participated in. Everyone is incredibly talented, and I love how one topic produced such a wide range of results. Y'all are lovely!

Just went back to check and think we still get one more? Yes? Hopefully?

Love the white on black LeapFeetFirst!! The contrast is perfect for highlighting your stitching and design.

This swap has been one of my absolute favorites! Cheesy

This gallery certainly rocks in the beautiful stitching department!  Who knew mandalas could be so striking in so many forms!

got a lot of great ideas as well...

Really love the black and white...and lime and purple are also a favorite combo of mine...well done!
