It’s the penultimate photo challenge today, it’s organised by Postcard from Gibraltar and today’s theme is Star…
This was the first design for the Christie SAL by Faby Reilly, she often uses embroidered stars to embellish her designs. I added three onto the red cotton to bring it all together.
These are some cards I made last year when I was demonstrating at a mini work-shop last Christmas, I love the light and depth of colour you get with silk paints.
She’s out of focus in this picture, but behind the bells decoration I made last year is a tiny cute wooden angel, sitting on a start with an even smaller star hanging underneath. Of my little wooden decorations she is one of my favourites, she’s probably about 30 years old…is that old for an angel 🙂
More Faby Reilly designs with lots of stars using different stitches. This is the mistletoe humbug and the holly humbug I made over the last couple of years.
This is the stained glass nativity I made last December. I made the satble and then decided I wanted a star, so I fashioned one from silver wire and soldered it on.
This is the nearest I’ve got to actual star embroidery, A couple of years ago for a Travelling Sketchbook project with my Embroiderers Guild I had to do something on the theme of Astronomy. After much searching for inspiration this is what I came up with. It’s made of shisha mirrors, metallic embroidery threads and beads.
Of course many quilt blocks make stars, either intentionally not or, most of these are from my first Splendid Sampler quilt
I decided to finish with photos of the stars in my life, my family, my dogs and my friends…
