Well, I couldn’t have a star series without a Christmas Star now could I?
I started posting my Christmas Star series early in December. I know it might be a bit late for Christmas stitching this year but hopefully we have inspired you to stitch some Christmas stars for next year – have we?
All of the star posts can be found in the right sidebar of the blog under categories – Colourful Christmas.
Remember, the pattern was designed by Janet from Nuts about Needlepoint and can be found HERE. Thank you Janet. Each star measures about 2 ½ inches and all were stitched on 18 count white mono canvas.
Karen chose a traditional Christmas colour scheme of red and green. Her Christmas star features three colours. She used colour #133 in a size 5 perle cotton which is a fantastic combination of green and burgundy red variations shown in the photo. She then added a solid tan also size 5 perle cotton DMC colour #3046 and finally a gold size 12 metallic braid #002 (likely Kreinik).
We hope you have enjoyed my Christmas star series this season. More importantly, I hope we have inspired you to start stitching some stars for next year. It is never too early. Remember the goal of the series was to take a simple star pattern and alter the appearance depending on the threads chosen.
I want to thank all the ladies in my stitch group for stitching the stars – thank you ladies!
What will your stars look like?
