Phat Quarter "Five" Swap

For the fifth anniversary of Mr X Stitch, this Fifth Friday Festival of Fabulousness swap theme on the Flickr Phat Quarter group was "Five".

This was probably the hardest theme so far for me, it took me ages to think up something. This is my piece for kirstymcguiness:

(because starfish have 5 legs/tentacles/whatever and wood is the present for fifth wedding anniversaries....).
I tried to just glue the wooden star buttons onto the hoop, but after a huge amount of swearing I wrapped the hoop in green/blue wool and sewed the buttons on instead.

This is Lizzibabe's piece for me - I love it!

You can see the rest of the swap pieces in this Mr X Stitch post.
