All you need is....

So I joined another flickr group! The Scrappy Hoop Swap! I love flickr! It's one of my favorite site to look at. There are tons of groups that you can join, photography, crafts, quilts, and I'm sure there are ones I don't even know about. I found out about this one because of Heather. She's an awesome blogger as well as quilter. I love checking out her blog.

So this is the hoop I did. My partner wanted "cutesy, japanese, bright, vintage, geometric" - her words exactly. Well, I had no idea what to do until I came across this satin fabric that I got from my Grandma Morey after she passed away. I have no idea why she had this fabric. She was so proper and surely didn't talk about kissing:)

So the deal is: you get a partner. You know them (what they like, what they don't), but they don't know you. It's a secret swap. You get about 4-6 weeks (depends on who is putting the swap on) to make your hoop (or quilt block or whatever). Mail it out and wait for your partner to send you one!

Here's the one I got!

Funny how they have the same fabrics, isn't it?! You can obviously tell what I like:) Hope you have a great Wednesday!
