TAST week 11: whipped weel

Sorry, again a bad picture. I am pretty sure now my camera doesn't like this color. It is exactly DMC 3843
The stitch of TAST week 11 is whipped wheel. I decided to try a irregular shaped whipped wheel.
I started with straight stitches for the spokes. The length varies. The two stitches at the bottom reach over the hidden tube.
On this picture I have whipped a few laps and threaded a bead. Sometimes I whipped one spoke, sometimes two spokes.

When a spoke was full, I skipped it. That means I went under that spoke and continued with the next one.
The longest spokes I whipped a few times.
The thread I used is Gumnut Buds color 408

This is where I am now.
On the left side of the chasm I stitched a "normal" whipped wheel.


  1. Some beautiful stitching going on here!

  2. Your stitching is so pretty and in my favorite I am truly intrigued with your pebble work. Happy stitching...

  3. Your pebble is coming along beautifully, Marjolein! Lots of wonderful stitching.

  5. I love what you have done with the irregular wheel. I so much love irregular things. I wish I would do more irregular, ha.
