The Stars are Out Tonight

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

Well, once again Mary Corbet's Needle 'n website posted a wonderful stitch. One I hadn't seen before, and can't wait to give it a try.

What's the stitch?  Mary outdid herself: The 6-point Star and the 8-point Star. So creative. So many possibilities. Stars. Snowflakes. Wonderment. Here's the link.

Over the years, I have stitched and charted quite a few Stars. Here are some of my favorites:

Mary's Gown is stitched with Sirna Stars.
Stitch Guide by Robin King

Need to regain the crisp edge of the star?
Do it with Fly Stitches.

Make a 5-point Star and make it an eyelet, too.

Anything by Brenda Hart is always a favorite.
Stitches for the Millennium is in my library. Is it in yours?
Nice little geometric background with a "star" feel.

There are other Stars out there, too.

Check out all of the Ruth Schmuff publications (books, CDs, APPs). Also, the Sandra Arthur books and APPs. Steph's Stitching blog did a recent posting about stars as she works the Betsy Ross canvas.

Thanks, ladies for doing the heavy lifting for us.

Hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving. Until the next time... Hugs, Robin


  1. Wonderful, just in time for my current project --Rebecca Woods Santa cuff!

  2. Wonderful post. I would never have dreamed of using the Sirna Star for clothing. You are a genius. Happy Turkey Day to you and yours!
