Star Dance is Margaret Bendig's latest creation .
Star Dance is a study in the difference in the use of a single color using different threads, stitches, direction of stitches and the reflection of light to create “dancing stars”. The original is stitched with Soie d’Alger silk and some specialty threads. The center star is a revolving set of patterns with metallic threads to add to the definition of the stitches. The background of the design is composed of many different star patterns using two values of blue silk with the addition white Sparkle Rays. This design is offered as a 24 or 18 count canvas with silk threads. The design size is 10” x10” on 18 count and 7.5 x7.5 “on congress ground.
