About Me
When I was 8 years old, I learned to crochet - a potholder out of yarn first, then a doily out of thread. I was mesmerized by the idea of creating something beautiful. And thus began my creative journey. Since then I have tried many crafts. Some were fads whose popularity (and availability of supplies) came and went. Many are traditional crafts and variations on them. All are self-taught. Among my favorites: crochet; counted cross-stitch; Christmas ornaments and decorations; and quilling, the most artistically satisfying of them all.

Oh, My Stars!

So busy this time of year, but I found time to create a new design. I've wanted to create stars for awhile and found a way to make perfectly lovely ones with much symmetry by using off-center circles and teardrops. Click any picture to see larger versions of the items in my Etsy shop.
