sweet little wonky star

Now we’re officially in November – so many Christmas projects are under way! I already made the Christmas fruitcake, so it has time to be well fed with brandy before the big day. It gets a capful each weekend.

I’m rather fond of this little hand-sewn ornament, so I thought I’d share it, in all its delightful wonkiness.

The sugar-glider fabric is a particularly nice Australian Christmas one – the shimmery gold print is quite durable. The varigated metallic hand-dyed embroidery thread was from a dyer in Christchurch. It was a little tricky to get the beads on the star’s tips to cooperate with the thick thread!

and the back:

It was made from this image, whose origins are sadly lost in the electrons of the Internet.
