Once again, I am showing you two samples that I am calling blazing stars because they jump off the canvas, a real pop of colours!

If you are joining me for the first time, I am featuring a series of star posts all month.  You will find all the stars if you check in the right sidebar of the blog under categories – colourful Christmas.

The pattern is exceptionally easy to stitch, ideal for a beginner and offered as a freebie thanks to Janet from Nuts about Needlepoint.  You will find the pattern HEREThank you for this Janet.  Each of my stars measure about 2 ½ inches on 18 count white mono canvas. 

In the last post, I showed you two stars stitched with two threads creating a pattern within a pattern.  Once again, I am sharing two stars stitched with two threads BUT I think both of these stars demonstrate how the placement of colours can produce additional designs. 

The top left star is stitched with size 5 perle cotton in colour #137.  The variegated is shown alternating with a solid yellow, DMC #307. 

Don’t you think they look great?

The star on the bottom right is stitched with a size 5 perle in colour #31 shown on the bottom left.  Once again a solid colour was added, DMC #906 in blue.      

Fun to see the changes in appearance with different threads!  More stars soon.
