My latest piece! I'm super proud of it. The handlebars are bullion knots, the spokes are straight stitches, the frame and wheel are stem stitching.

I can't decide if I'm willing to part with it yet! I'm taking the weekend to mull it over.

I love it!  So simple, yet very striking.  Great work!  I don't think I'd have the heart to part with it.  Smiley

A perfect motif and nicely done! I love white on white. Also because it makes you get more creative about the stitches when texture plays a bigger role than colour.

Honestly, I saw the smaller image and thought "Yay! Someone's doing something cool with candlewicking at last!" It's not quite candlewicking, but still really, really cool. Well done!!

Now it's got me inspired to go back to some mono-colour work again (I love this forum for the inspiration and itchy fingers it gives me!).

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is great. It's so simple, yet so eye-catching. I like that you used long stitches for the spokes rather than a bunch of smaller stitches. Nicely done!
