In my last post I featured star light and I couldn’t forget star BRIGHT!

If you are joining me for the first time, star bright is the fourth post featuring my Christmas star theme.  I will be 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 featured on the Nuts about Needlepoint blog HEREThank you for this Janet.  Each of my stars measure about 2 ½ inches on 18 count white mono canvas. 

In the first star post I showed a sample using only one thread and in the second two threads.  Star bright uses three threads, one of which is a metallic for a little bling!  I think this is a great example of a pattern within a pattern.  The center section of this star is stitched with a coral shade of perle cotton, DMC colour #892.  Marie added some Kreinik 1/16” ribbon to create the appearance of a wrapped gift.  The outer green is colour #184 which is a fantastic blend of greens ideal for any seasonal needlework project.

I like the use of the coral in this star because it is a bit different.  You could easily stitch a series of this variation simply by switching the colour used in the center.  I could envision a garland with these could you? 

All the stars are ideal beginner projects! What’s next – wait and see!
