Starry Starry Night


I like to see stars 
twinkle with light,
making the sky 
so pretty and bright.

They fill the night with 
their magic and beams,
I'm sure that they know 
all my hopes and dreams.


Featured: my new market bags
made from leftover bits and pieces.

  17. Love your poem Amalia; starry skies have always fascinated humans. It’s quite magical. Your new market bags look wonderful. I was a teenager in the 1960s and many people who could crochet would make bags, vests, hats etc...all so cheerful!

  25. Lovely totes and I love the stars too. We are just about to the first day of Winter here. On clear nights the sky is so lovely. We can see the big dipper and little dipper and the milky way and so many more. The sky just seems to be brighter on Winter nights with the snow reflecting the stars.

  39. Love it. Beautiful bags. Good way to use even the smallest scraps of yarn.

    About stars. Stars fall every night, but several times a year, there are many more than usual. Here in the Netherlands around 14 December but I was gazing and gazing tonight but saw nothing. Yes, I saw other stars. Indeed what Beatrice is saying: the stars are so twinkly this time of the year. Yes I love stars. Lift up your eyes on high and see ✡

  48. Beautiful ... would never guess that they were made from leftover bits and pieces, as they are so perfect. And having such a beautiful market bag would surely mean that the owner would always remember to take it with her ))

  54. Great use of your leftover! Your market bags are lovely!
    I made a crocheted bag back in the 70’s but didn’t see the point in lining it ...... of course it wasn’t much used! Now if I look in the Dreaded Cupboard it could well be lurking somewhere there, and now I would line it!
    Hugs, Barbara xx

  56. Love the star, the bags and your blog!

  57. I love your poem and I feel an affinity with the stars.
    When my family were still in France and we were so far apart, I was comforted by the knowledge that we see the same stars!
    In fact I was wrong as the Southern Hemisphere night sky is very different to the Northern Hemisphere!
    Everything you make is beautiful dear Amalia💖
