Just a quiet spot where I can share my love of crafts. I have a yarn, fabric, pattern and loom addiction. I am a brain-stem stroke survivor, you can stop in at Raverly.com and say hi, my name is barbarabradford

Starburst Down, Hexagon to Go
Crocheting rounds to each center, then re-pinning to a different color yarn, actually made this project (well actually 2 projects) go pretty fast.
The layout was actually the hardest part for me, with 2 squares just alike, I had to be careful not to get them close together. Having tons of safety pins left over from my quilting days, really helped. I pinned the longest strips first, and pinned a paper number to each row. Then because I don't have any short-term memory, I drew a map, and finally pictured the layout.
The border on the starburst is more solid stitches. I wanted more of a frame, then a border. I am still sewing the hexagon afghan together.
I am still in the cutting phase of my sewing projects, so no pics just yet.
