Henrike, who lives near the Baltic Sea, is a frequent contributor to "It's a String Thing" and I always enjoy her tiles as well as her weather updates. This spring she surprised me with a package of her pretty straw stars. I was moved to happy tears - such a precious gift.
They are extraordinarily special, not only because they are a gift, but because she wove a tangled piece of vellum into the center of each star. The tangles she used are my Bud, Budlite, Xav, and Lanie - isn't that remarkable?
I have been waiting patiently for the Christmas season to hang them on my tree ~
Each one is delicately knotted together with a silver gossamer string.
Each one is different.
Each one is beautifully tangled.
It is wonderful that Christmas is here and they now grace my tree. I must admit though, that I have kept them displayed on my bookcase since they first arrived.

May your gifts these season bring comparable joy!
