|Star Crossed Ornament Back|
|Fifth Arm Complete|
August 26, 2015--Moving along nicely--fourth arm completed. Stitching two of these ornaments at the same time, so it's taking time to do each section. The compensation stitches aren't easy to do along the diagonal lines of the star and I'm constantly aware of the chance to "over stitch" a pattern.
The project photo (first picture below) shows this as a round ornament with no background stitching. I'm thinking of doing a light coverage darning pattern using a very shimmery thin thread in the background. Hmmm....will have to play with that idea.

|First Arm of the Star Stitched|
August 4, 2015--Started stitching Susan Jones Star Crossed ornament. This project is from the July/August issue of Needlepoint Now magazine and the challenge of variations and compensation stitches is right up my ally. Below is a project photo. In process pictures will be posted as each arm of the star is stitched.
