One Down and 5 to GO! Original embroidery for the Hoop up! Swap.

I've finished 1 of the 6 pieces in the Hoop up! Embroidery swap!

This is for j_q_adams ...and the theme is a fantasy woodland theme. I just knew it was going to be a blast stitching up some animals doing something fun!
I had a rough sketch of bears playing hopscotch in my sketchbook from awhle back & thought it would make a great embroidery pattern....so I drew it up...adding the tree & then stitched it!
The colors were 4 skeins of floss that John had sent me along with his fabric. I started with embroidering the bears first...and then just worked the rest out to make it look balanced.

I love it! It was hard to let it go!
I may list the pattern for this piece on etsy soon...when I can get a chance. I've been pretty busy lately!
(you'll see why in my next post!)
Stay crafty!
