Stars to end the Year

I just had to write this post before midnight as it will be the 60th one for this year according to the table at the side of my blog.  Consistently I have kept to around 60 posts each year since 2009 so did not want to fall below that number.

I have tatted three stars, not knowing what colour a star should be I went for white, yellow and a rusty combination.

What I should have done though was this technique of Jane's which you will find here  for the placement of the centre beads.   Learning new or different ways of doing things is never easy for me, I find it very frustrating having to stop and read instructions.  But will have a go at this technique over the next week as it should make the stars look much better.   

Also sorted the beads and now having a general tidy up of everything and causing a tremendous mess, but it will be worth the effort when it is finished.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year. 


  1. Happy New Year, Sally! I love the stars! I'm hoping to learn some new techniques this year, but I'm not going to stress out about it. There is so much to enjoy with tatting, and I intend to do some exploring!

  2. Beautiful stars! I also wondered what colour a star should be. Good luck with the rest of the tidying.

  3. Happy New Year, great stars.

  4. Your stars are wonderful!!! :)
