Bethlehem is finished

Hello wonderful readers, as you can see, I have completed another Bethlehem.  For those of you who have stitched the pattern and are wondering ... where are all the little stars that dot the sky?  you're right - they are not there.  The opalescent thread sparkles so much that I feel that the stars are not really necessary. 
In case you missed the post with the info about this project ... The fabric is Crystal Stellar by Picture This Plus - it is an overdyed opalescent  blue lugana fabric with tinges of purple and the threads are DMC colour variations number 4240 which contains both light and dark blue as well as purple.  Bethlehem is designed by Diane Arthurs and published by Imaginating Inc. 
This wonderful piece will soon be on its way to my friend Cindy in Denver as well as a couple of the Christmas trees.
Warm gentle hugs to all of you.  Louise
