This is on it's way to my secret partner in the Misfit Quilter's modern hoop swap, a small swap group that I totally gate-crashed after reading about it on Twitter. I was in the mood to make another hoop. They don't take tons of time and you can have a lot of fun with them.
Her 'diamonds' are clear beads attached with a French knot.
I'm never sure that others will share my sense of humor, but I thought it would be funny to have a totally blinged out princess Chihuahua in her 80's Adidas bag letting everyone know that her other ride is a Prada. I hope no one sues me. I think every boy in my high school carried their books in those vinyl Adidas bags in the early 80's...that is until the handles inevitably ripped out of the rivets!
I'm linking up to Rachel's Celebrate Color Needlepoint pool with this hoop!
One more swap to complete: I'm making a pair of potholders for a member of the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild in a swap with my Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. We are only about an hour's drive apart location-wise and sometimes a few members of one guild will attend the other's monthly meeting. We thought a guild to guild swap would be fun. Have you ever done a swap like that?
