Monday Etsy Madness- Starry Night

by Susan Myers on June 25, 2012

Last week, my Quilled Starry Night sold.  I am very excited!  That piece was near and dear to me and it was tough packing it up and shipping it off to it’s new owner, but I am very happy to be able to share it with those that will appreciate it.  The painting of Van Gogh have always inspired me and his style and expression have always been a favorite of mine.

I can’t believe I stumbled onto the website of the creator of the quilled Starry Night project I’ve been staring at for a month. I was just checking the internet for Starry Night paint-by-numbers wallpaper. I thought for sure someone would be making and selling something like that by now. Anyway, congrats on selling the Starry Night!

Suzy, You have probably been asked this a thousand times, but do you have a diagram for this? Or directions, instruction?
