This week the challenge is a stitch called Whipped Wheel.The people over on stitchin fingers who are working pebbles will have no trouble finding a use for this!
You can whip both full wheels and half wheels with success or whip spokes around a bead.
Whipped wheels are a stitch that are a lot of fun to use in contemporary embroidery, particularly when they are used in conjunction with other hand embroidery stitches.
You can create some rich tixrues with this stitch and if you experimetn with threads you have many versatile options available to you.
Once again the challenge is:
For new hands to learn the stitch
If you are an experienced stitcher take the stitch and push it a little further in a creative manner or combine this stitch with one of the stitches already covered in TAST 2012. If you have worked a sample in a previous challenge feel free to post a link in comments as it will inspire people but if you have time do try another sample and do something different and new!
How to join in
Stitch a sample, take a photograph of it, put in online in your blog, flickr site or on stitchin fingers page, swing by here and leave a comment with your full web address so people can visit and see your sample.
When you leave a comment
When you leave a comment leave it on this post. People will not find your comment if you dot them all over the blog and this means you will get less visitors for you! That is sad, after going to the effort of stitching a sample then photographing it and getting it online.

Any special rules?
There are no rules but I do have a request, please link back here.
Interesting work will be featured
On Pintangle I will feature samples that participants have stitched as part of the challenge. These feature spots draw attention to particularly creative and interesting work. This will mean some people’s work will be re-published here. Obviously I will credit them and link to their website. I am going to assume that when you leave your link here if you dont say anything, I have your permission to feature your work. If you do not want your work to be featured in the highlights series please state this in the comment you leave.
Other groups and networks
You can also share your explorations with other members on the social network site of your choice. There is a Facebook TAST 2012 page, stitchin fingers group and the flickr TAST site. All these sub groups are set up at request of members.
Although I do watch these groups my main focus is here and if you want to contact me do so here as with so much activity I might miss you on the other sites.
