Starting in...........

Silver Bells is going to be a standup so she needs a background.  I have all the threads for that so I am going to do background for a few days.  I will watch for the mailman daily for some other threads too!

Second Band

I worked the second band with Fyre Werks and did a star type stitch over the top using Planet Earth Silk.

From the top

I started this design  with a rectangle filled with an  Alternating Cashmere Variation that has a silver upright cross.  This is the first little twinkly star series in the piece.

In the background is the white 18 count canvas flecked with silver which is cut 10 x 12.  Here are some of the possible threads for what I am going to call Midnight Stars.
