In a recurring dream, stars play in the night sky. They blaze across space, turn somersaults, or spin around and around in sparkling spirals.

Crocheted doilies have a starry look. They remind me of my happy dream stars and I thought they could help me capture my dream in a wall hanging.

Dreams give us a glimpse into the unconscious. Since humans seem to share a collective unconscious, I think that creating art inspired by dreams can touch people’s hearts deeply. We can only hope the dreams are good.
