This summer, it seems that starfish have become a theme.  There are more on the beach than normal.  And I have purchased a few new pieces of summer jewellery, you guessed it - Starfish.

 This post is a little late.  A few weeks ago I attended a workshop by Deanne Fitzpatrick.  It was "White on White" - a summer starfish pillow.  I always struggle with the tone on tone color graduations, so this class was alot of fun.  There are several different textures.  I used wool strips, yarn, roving, and even a little lace ribbon!  Its a cute little pillow.   I might even hook a 2nd one - maybe with a sand dollar? 
 Below are a few photos I took last month at the beach.  A little starfish inspiration.


  1. Kim,
    I am in love with that starfish pillow!!!! Yes Yes! Make a sand dollar one! You NEED to have a collection of those pillows!
    Love the starfish photos too! Do you find them attached to the shells that way? You can tell I don't live by the ocean LOL!! Been there once or twice and I've always loved shells and starfish etc!
