Stitch Doodle Quote Embroidery

I made this hoop for @Cindy in the recent Quote Me on That Swap. As soon as I saw this quote listed on her Q I knew I wanted to stitch it up - it’s so her! Since Cindy is also known for (among other things) her wonderful doodling skills, I also wanted to pay homage to her geometric style. I found an inspiration photo online and this hoop was born!

I think this one might show the colors more true-to-life:

And the back just for fun:

It was a lot of fun to stitch up. Thanks for looking!

Oooo! This is really nice! I am in awe of people who can just wing it while crafting and it turns out. Makes my brain fritz out a little to even consider.

I’m in awe of those people, too! I definitely drew triangles as guides with a transfer pen. :sweat_smile: I think my winging it days are behind me.
