Finished Final "Hoop Up" Piece

The deadline for Hoop Up is April 30th and 2 weeks ago I still had no idea what I would do for my final piece. I was completely stumped by Nicole's (Follow the White Bunny) Paris/France theme but as soon as I saw two of my teammates, cathygaubert and marilynk, pieces I was inspired. I tried to use peacock blues and green as Nicole loves those colors as well as a little pink which she also likes.
I decided to stitch up a street theme of a pet grooming shop with lots of pets outside visiting on the street. All elements of my design came from elements on separate designs within "A Rainbow of Stitches".

Nicole stitched a really cool piece for me which I just love; it's so serene and peaceful to look at with it's subtle colors. Nicole design's some pretty amazing embroidery patterns which can be seen in her etsy shop here.

  1. Both pillows are absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors and the black on the one. The stitching on the Butler pillow is just incredible.

    And how did I miss the animals on the street visiting stitching? Eegads woman, that's the darndest, cutest thing!

    Enjoy your weekend!
