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 HERE. Thank 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!
