Lacy, Starry, Flaky

It's been a starry kind of week as I've been crocheting these six-point stars. The tutorial for five-point stars is free at The Royal Sisters. And you may want to check out the other tutorials there; they're very well done. I just added a cluster of doubles and chains on the base row for six-points.
I sprayed them with spray starch and blocked them to sharpen the points in a room-full of bad lighting...oh, it's bad.
Nine starchy stars in a stack.
Nine starchy stars not in a stack.

One hangin' away from the pack.Stringin' along, singin' a song, hangin' out with very frosty friends.... on my old Hoosier cabinet.Hope your week is goin' as cool/cold as mine. :)

  19. Thank you SO MUCH! I have bot a cousin and her and her family and a sweet niece and her family that were very dissatisfied with the religious beliefs that they were each raised to believe. So after many years of wandering, each happen to learn of this new Jewish movement that is welcoming so many lost souls into their Jewish temples. I especially love making thing for their children to make their Holy Days and Hildays especially memorable to each of them! Guess what each family is getting for Hannukhah this year thanks to you!
