  2. I hope that you do. It is a beautiful piece. I named this after my fiance's mother who is disabled. She said that it looked like a starburst so I ran with it. She will be happy to learn about your plans for this pattern. Thank you so much for taking interest and thank you for using toward what is indeed a worthwhile cause. Good Bless and happy stitching!

  4. Great pattern. Thanks for sharing

  5. @Sweet Yarns: You're welcom and thanks for your compliment. When you add the button from Ravelry, it automatically updates the amount of projects as people add them. I'm not sure how it does it, but it's cool. If you need help adding the button, just let me know. God Bless and happy stitching!

  6. Hi Helen. What is the URL I should have along with the button image so that it is shows on all the patterns within the blog. I browse in Ravelry, but could not find the specific
    Badge with the number of projects?

  7. @Sweet Yarns: It maybe just for patterns that you design, but when I go to my pattern on Ravelry and click on the projects tab, it is there. It shows the button and next to it is the link for the HTML code. I just added it to the post here on my blog and it showed up. Hopefully that helps.

    1. It is kind of hard to say without knowing the colors for your bedroom. I will though give you a plan for choosing your colors. First, you want a neutral color for the background behind the star. In mine, I used an off white. Whites and creams will look good here, it makes the star pop. For the star, you want to colors that compliment, but contrast each other. For example, blue and green or purle and green, you just need to look at the colors together to decide that. Look at the colors in your room, what is your main color and what is your accent? If you look to match up these shades, it should work out well. When determining your star colors, use your main color for the biggest portion of the star and border. For mine, it is the victorian rose. The other color should be your accent. Another idea that would work would be a monochromatic scheme...a dark and light shade of one color. Check out the link in the post for the Baby Block crochet quilt and the colorsd that CL Halvorson used.

      Good luck and I hope this helps!

      Happy Stitching!
