I actually started this hoop for the hoopla along in February and just never finished it. It sat on my desk staring at me for months when I saw that a swap partner had it pinned. This gave me the motivation to finish stitching it up. Then I realized that it would be a perfect fit for August's hoopla along theme which was whimsical! Win Win! I got to cross it off my to do list, add it to a swap package, and show it off on Craftster.
I use a chain stitch for all the lines, a satin stitch for filling in some of the hearts, and some French knots for some detailing.
