You know that feeling you get when you see something lovely, and you think, “I could do that” and then you do? Well, I’m beginning to feel that.
I’m very fond of garlands and buntings, you see. I like that they can change the whole mood of a room with nothing more than thumbtacks. And on Etsy I found a lovely one, made of white crocheted stars. But was I going to pay for it? No. And so I’m making my own.
I had to dust off my crocheting skills– I had dabbled with it many years ago, when I was nine or ten. Did I mention that I love youtube tutorials? I’ve been crocheting up a storm. In 24 hours I’ve done nine stars. 4 for the tree (see above) and 5 without the hang loop. And yes, we “still” have our tree up. Actually, we put it up *after* Christmas– our nod to the Russian New Year.
I’m looking forward to having my own starry string.
