Radiating from the center of this round embroidery hoop, I've hand-embroidered french knots that start as dark teal, navy blue, and midnight blue, and the knots quickly begin to fade into steel blue, cobalt, cornflower blue, and eventually to sky blue and end in a pale powder blue. This purely abstract piece was a fun experiment to progress the thread from dark to light in a beautiful gradient, and it took many hours to finish the hoop, which contains thread in 12 different hues of blue.

The hoop measures 3" (7.62 cm). The wooden hoop has been stained a rich chestnut brown, and the back has been left covered. I have used 100% cotton embroidery thread against a 100% white cotton fabric background.

This piece is ready to hang by the top screw, or it can be propped on a flat surface; just be sure to hang it out of direct sunlight to avoid fading. For shipping, this piece will be carefully bubble-wrapped to ensure it arrives safely.

To keep shipping costs down, I mail everything via USPS First-Class mail with delivery confirmation and tracking, unless otherwise requested (just email or convo me before you order if you want faster shipping or insurance for a slightly higher fee). Once you place your order, I guarantee to ship your item(s) by the next business day once payment clears in Paypal, and I always message my customers with a tracking number for their domestic orders.
For international orders, I will issue a Paypal refund of the difference if shipping ends up costing less than what you pay.

If this is not quite your style, I do offer other embroidered hoop artworks in my shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/sometimesiswirl?section_id=7486600) and I am always open to custom requests!
