Whipping along

Whipped and woven wheels? Signed off. That completes my stitch samples for my course and it has been a real challenge and joy working on them. To keep pushing myself asking; have I used  real think yarn, have I used something bonkers, have I played with scale? Can I add a bead or sequin? And probably most importantly, how might I use this stitch in another project? 

For these wheels I can see a flower garden, A sky of fireworks, a shell or fossil, a piece of gothic tracery, a weird cell, a decoration on a garment. I liked mixing these up with some Dorset button designs as the are the same principal. Another useful stitch to add to my tool box.

I am feeling a bit less angst ridden today- it is the magic of stitch I'm sure.
