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 HERE. Thank 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.
