Susan, I am impressed with your attention to detail. So here is another tip for you, you can do the outside outline with the tack down in a different color than the satin stitch. This way it is easier to trim and ensure everything is clean cut. It really does looks great. Hoop pop out is frustrating. Prevention would be a good discussion topic!

Love the details and it really looks wonderful especially noting your experience with hoop "pop out"

I am working under a grant deadline to learn and implement this software. So, documentation is important....especially for remembering what worked and what did not. It's like a textile journal of my learning curve.
