Do you remember those little gold stars we used to get awarded as a mark of achievement in school? I know, I’m going wayyyyyyyyyy back here! Since I’m featuring stars this month, this particular one reminded me of those little sticker stars we used to get often accompanied by a little note our teachers wrote. Sadly, some of those “notes” were not always as positive as I might have liked them to be BUT that’s another story.
I hope you have been enjoying my Christmas star series. Remember, you will find all the stars if the check in the right sidebar of the blog under categories – colourful Christmas.
If you have been following my star posts then you know the pattern is featured on the Nuts about Needlepoint blog HERE. Thank you for this Janet. Each of my stars measure about 2 ½ inches on 18 count white mono canvas.
So, gold stars features colour #187 which is a very popular and gorgeous blend of reds, pink/reds and orange/reds. It is an ideal blend for seasonal stitching. Marie started by stitching a small central star in colour #187 surrounded by alternating gold and red metallic threads. The outer border is stitched with colour #187.
What do you think about filling in the outer areas with perhaps basketweave to create a square ornament?
Next time I’m sharing my final star – can you guess what I named it?
