Hoopla Swap 3

Check out my Craft Critique review of the terrific book Scandinavian Stitches by Kasja Wikman. The article ran a few weeks ago and I did all the crafting in a flurry before Christmas.The book is full of terrific seasonal projects. I highly recommend it.

I also recently did another Hoopla swap on Craftster. For this one, we needed to exchange a tiny 2 to 3 inch hoop motif. Because if the small size and because my partner, pugwash, mentioned him in her sign up information, I stitched up a little Mario:

A few days later the hoop she stitched for me arrived. We were completely on the same wavelength because she did a piranha plant for me:
Piranha Plant Crosstitch

Swapping is really fun. Thanks, Pugwash!

I love the first 2 projects, the ones with the fabric leaves and the mouse purse, that's so cute.
