In late winter when the snow was deep, the ice thick, and it looked like spring wouldn't arrive, I was compelled to crochet bright motifs the color of forsythia blossoms in spring. I crocheted over 40 motifs in different patterns and colors, including these cheerful yellow gold stars on an antique white mid-century mesh. I crocheted and blocked the star motifs in advance and then assembled the doily in an evening. The Starburst Doily is available for sale at my Etsy shop.
