Pastel star

I found a very fine gold and ecru thread at a tiny shop in the middle of nowhere ( so to speak), its very fine not the normal no5 I use, looks like a no12 I think ( no labels). Anyway I liked to have a go and see how it would end up. I used a 4 petal kiku herringbone stitch, I love the ''flower'' pattern at the center that was created. In real life the gold thread looks very pretty but in my photos its dull :(

Dogwood C8

Pattern from Barbara Seuss Book ''Japanese Temari : a colorful Spin on an Ancient Craft'' ( ISBN-10: 1-9333081-2-5)

Red and Green

I started this ball as a simple four division.
When I finished the squares I felt I needed to fill the gaps, so added the bands.
