Scrappy Hoop Swap

I finished my scrappy hoop for my partner. If you remember I made this one but then decided that it wasn't her. After much thought I decided something like this was her.

I embroidered the girl from this book. I then used this as inspiration to my tree which I just love and will be doing alot more of.

Then the back I hot glued to the hoop so that it had the finished look and add one of my labels that I made myself.

I will be mailing it out to my partner soon. I can't wait for her to get it. It is a hilarious story about who my partner is!

Then I received mine in the mail from Alexandra ( asquared ) I was so surprised to receive 3 hoops since the swap only asked you to make 1, but she thought of me and my 2 girls. Aren't they the best hoops?

Scrappy Owl Hoops

I put them in the girls room above their bookshelf. I really need to get them a new one that is larger their books are overflowing and I just found out about these books and really want to buy them for their room.

I do have to say swaps can be really awesome when you do them. They are alot of work and most of the time it is worth it. You get great partners, like Alexandra, who make you amazing things. I have been fortunate to get some great partners. Sometimes it doesn't work out and that happens (to be honest) swaps can be a hit or miss but luckily I have always loved my stuff that I make for someone and the things that I have received have been perfect.

Your hoops are adorable! I have never participated in a sewing swap, but it sounds fun! I have swapped ATCs, which is also really fun and I have, indeed, "met" some really great ladies!
Take care,

I love your tree! The buttons are perfect. Great job.

And, the ones you got are so fun! By the way, I checked out those books. They are so cute!!!! Too bad we already have most of them. Pout.

I keep seeing such cute backs on these hoops! Now I know for next time. I love this new hoop you made too. I'm sure your partner would love either one. :)
