Earlier this year I participated in the "Aussie Hoop Swap" which was hosted by Jas McMahon @jasminesews
Participants were asked to create a piece of hoop art for their assigned swap partners.
Our partners were secret so we did not know who was making for us - at least we didn't until our parcel arrived. And who we made for may not be the same person who was making for us. Our dispatch deadline was 31 March.
My assigned swap partner was Kristy Monaghan @misskm89 who lives in Western Australia. I was told that Kristy likes blue, aqua, turquoise and navy. Kristy does not sew but does do embroidery.

When Kristy mentioned that "the ocean is my place to be happy and sooth my soul" I immediately knew that I would run with this theme. I was inspired by the image of the lighthouse in her mosaic so went searching online for suitable images to use for inspiration.

|The Semco threads that I sent were various shades of blues.

All photos on Instagram were posted with the hashtag #aussiehoopswap There are some amazing photos in this feed so please check them out when you have time to do so.
In my next post I will show you what I received from this swap.
