I finally was able to get a full photo of this top:
here. I loved making this pattern and will make another one down the road using a different layout.
The stars were an unexpected addition .... no, who is kidding here .... they are my trademark now. This is the 6th top that has these stars in them. I'm not finished with this star. It will have to run its' course.
Speaking of stars .... guess what is gracing our living room window? Yes, my star templates. They are there to prevent birds from crashing into our window and they are working. Yesterday, I saw a bird hovering in front of the window before flying up and away. The black cat cut-out wasn't doing the job, so with the addition of the stars, birds now think twice before trying to fly through our window.
