I'm so excited about the exchange I'm doing with a friend. Our goal is to make 10 sets of two leaves (keep one and trade one) and then we'll take it from there later.
I've been wanting to try the whipped wheel since I've been seeing it all over the web-maybe at Take a Stitch Tuesday first? I made my spoke points by using coins and buttons as guides. After adding the bullion stitch border, it needed a little something else, and I think the beads added some pizzaz.
I can't wait to see dozens of the leaves together on a sampler!
