Carol - TAST-Whipped Wheels

Whipped wheels in perle 8 and 12 together with beads - "Canadian Rockies" takes on a whole new meaning!  I'd like to say they are a gift from Suz to Sarah!
Further efforts on my facing page.

No seam treatments this week, but I have finished the bottom right hand corner and constructed a few more blocks
Oh, and flowers in my meadow

You are very good at the contemporary abstract style of embroidery. Knocked it out of the park with your Canadian Rockies! And the purple is moving around the block quite nicely. I'd say this is going to be a really interesting block-not to mention your blanket stitch is superb.

Wow, great job on this weeks stitch! Your block is looking wonderful.

They look great piled in that corner like that. I love the other treatment of the corner, too.

Very nice! I can't wait to see a shot of the whole block! Love the lace and the inclusion of what looks like a grommet in your whipped wheel. You really captured the Colorado spirit with this one!

I think you get the gold star for creative use of whipped wheels! They are just excellent and this block is a beauty.

Deborah McLaughlin said...

I can't add anything except my admiration. I can't wait for the whole block, too! Lovely!

Wow! What wonderful examples to steal--uh, borrow!

The "grommet" was from a collection of beads. I just had to search for a bead with a largish hole.

Feel free to help yourself.

Very nice whipped wheel composition. I also like that folded ribbon with buttons.

I like the effect of the whipped wheels with the beads for the snow capped mountains! The orange button trail caught my eye too, and the meadow flowers look so delicate and pretty.

Oh, your whipped wheels are wonderful. I love the ones piled in the corner and the one over the grommet or open ring. Your work is so beautiful and your creativity always dazzles me.
