This week for TAST was woven wheels. It was a slow start for me with a lot of reverse stitching. My wheels just didn’t like what I was making them out of and also didn’t want to be very round!! After quite a few attempts I started getting the hang of them and started to really enjoy doing them.
This is what I ended up with – “Treasures Beneath”. It is quite ‘blingy’ in real life but it doesn’t show up in the photograph.
The background is coloured with fabric paint very lightly. It doesn’t show well in the photo either. I wish I knew how to photograph my pieces properly!!!!
The border is just a narrow row of bars which have been woven (perle thread).
This week I didn’t do a journal for the stitch but will instead glue in some pictures and copies of wheels I have seen.
This was my journal for last week’s piece ‘Naxos’.
There are some other ideas for running stitch I would like to explore here.
Make sure you don’t miss all the other fabulous samples of woven wheels on Sharon B’s Pintangle site.
