(Thank you to blupaisan who generously allowed me to use her computer to post my entry!)

My entry is a Teesha Moore patch that I made for blupaisan-my partner-in the current round of the TM patch swap.  We first became friends on Craftster.  When I went to meet her in person a few years later, she had made me a rainbow hoopla using beads.  It was an exquisite piece of art, and I still have it hanging up in my home.

I was inspired to make her a patch that was reminiscent of the hoopla she made me...I used rainbow colored varigated thread for the stitches.  The front of the patch is yellow, one of blu's favorite colors.  The back is one of her favorite fabric prints.  The button speaks for itself. Cheesy

Sentimental projects are always the best ones. Even without the explanation, you can tell this was made with love. Beautiful work!

This is a wonderful visual celebration of the friendship that you share with Blupaisan.   I love the pattern on the back (which makes me think of frothy blue/green ocean waves) and the button at the vibrant yellow center of the front seals the deal; great work!
