crochet around an old Christmas card
Outside it's cold and wet. 
So, I better stay in and try some more of this ornament making!
 Update on the "knitted star tutorial";
Barbara made a perfect translation of the pattern in German language.
You can find these German instructions by clicking on the link in the sidebar.
Thank you Barbara for your kindness!

The Flickr photos you chose to highlight are lovely. I really like your angel card. My eyes were especially drawn to the sparkle of her white dress. Very pretty. Keep dry and have a lovely day.

Love your ornament idea! I've been checking out all the felt ornaments on flickr too! I've really been in the mood to give it a try and make some of my own...

Heerlijk inspirerend. Leuk al die kleine ornametjes. Nou ja klein en sommigen toch veel werk.

Je kaart is heel origineel met die lekkere frisse kleuren.


Wil al tijden de ster leuke breien.
Nu in het duits snap ik hem helemaal, fijn.
Maar ik krijg mijn meerderingen niet mooi. Zou je mij kunnen vertellen hoe jij die doet. Bij jou lopen de steken zo mooi als een randje. Heb vannacht om half 1 achter de PC allerlei variaties geprobeerd en vergeleken, maar helaas !!;-))

Alleen als je tijd hebt hoor !!

Hoi Marian'ne, Ik brei de eerste steek van de naald en meerder vanuit de tweede steek.
Succes, corry
