My friend Patt, of Patt and Lee Designs, wrote me late Thursday about her newest pieces, scrap bag stars. I didn’t get to look at them until yesterday but I loved them so much I ordered all of them and their stitch guides immediately. I want to share them with you.
The first, and most elaborate, one is pictured above. There are eight stitches and 40 colors in this design. That’s a great way to use up your odds and ends of thread.
This is the second star. It too uses 40 colors and has seven stitches, four of them new to this design.
This one, the third, uses a smaller color palette with 8 colors and 7 stitches. This color combination, which I always think of as “Meadow” after the Watercolour thread, is such a pretty, peaceful one.
And there is an all metallic version as well.
Think of the fun you can have making these. I feel a needlepoint fit coming on.
