A pair of pillow cases were my entry for the embroidery section of our Needlecraft Guild annual competition earlier this year.  The theme was "Stars"

I was inspired by the geometric string art designs of my schooldays.    Since this involved counted thread work I used waste canvas to stitch them on the cotton pillowcases.

A few in-progress pictures

The white thread in the centre of some stars is DMC glow in the dark floss.

Many thanks for all the kind compliments.  I attach a pdf file of the graph paper diagrams I used  in case anyone wants to do something similar.
