Old whipped wheels

It’s Tuesday, time to share a few old samples of whipped wheels, the TAST stitch for week 11. The first one is my favourite. It’s a combo of whipped and woven wheel on a crazy ornament, a gift for a quilting friend. The thread is broder special. Maybe I’m going to repeat this wheel on my TAST sampler and take step by step photo’s to show you how I stitched it.
My second sample is a whipped wheel on my first pebble. I think this week’s stitch gives me the excuse to start a second one! I dyed a piece of muslin for my second pebble in this box.
This is a whipped wheel on a woven ATC. It’s stitched with 2 threads of stranded DMC on felt.
A whipped wheel on a bead, a detail on my ornament Reply to Good Morning. I’m not sure about the thread, I think it’s a perle 8.
 A whipped wheel on my sampler There Is No Spoon. The thread is an overdyed Stef Francis perle 5.
A detail on my sampler Touch with French knots, beads and an oyster stitch.
And this is my wonky TAST 2007 sampler. The threads are mostly stranded DMC, only the lilac woven wheels are stitched with a tulle knitting yarn.
