A-O-K!

Check out my hoop!!!

My K hoop from Ella

It arrived today all the way from Atlanta. Made by Ella just for me in the Misfit Quilter's hoop swap. I've never done cross stitch, but I've watched my mom carefully mark off pattern rows and count her way across aida cloth under a magnifying glass. Wow, these x's are so tiny!! I must say that I don't think I've got the patience, or eyesight for it. Just this last weekend, I was really ready for some progressive lenses....note to self: call for eye exam tomorrow.

I just love it that I have my very on "K" hoop. It is proudly hanging in my sewing room already.

I've had some seriously good swap luck lately, haven't I?
