TAST week 18 Woven and Whipped Wheels

I'm playing catch up this week--I don't know how I got behind but I did so here's the first one.
Week 18 for TAST is Woven and Whipped Wheels.
I love this stitch or should I say technique-there's something about it that makes me feel good when I am doing it.
I used a variegated silk thread again and I love the look that it gives.
I did some fill in with my favourite stitch French Knots in silk and DMC Perle 5 thread.I have also included some Dorset Buttons that I had made previously as the same technique is used when making them.

Now on to Week 19 to catch up.

Dorset buttons look interesting, I read about them somewhere. I love the tin much the same idea as our Goddess Goody bag. Happy Mothers day.

Love your woven and whipped wheels sample. It's so romantic looking. I've never seen Dorset buttons before but these look wonderful.

Love those Dorset Buttons. If only I could catch up with TAST I'd be a happy chick (I've done up to week 17, so it's not TOO bad).

Love that little posy. I've always wanted to try the wheels - I may have to give them a go.

These are beautiful. I love the texture and colors. Looks pretty labor intensive.
