Last year at the FQ Retreat I signed up for the Sample Swap. I enjoyed it so much I have put my name down for round two this year. I need to make four of the same item to be swapped with my group at the Retreat. So today I got down to designing an embroidery for the hoops I plan on giving.
I decided on using the Underground symbol as inspiration as I wanted the hoop to reflect the London roots of the Retreat. I also decided I would go with embroidery floss instead of perle cottons for a change. I rounded up the necessary supplies and got to tracing out the pattern.
And then I started stitching.
One down. Several more to go. But at least I have made a start.
