constellations made to order....

this listing is for the purchase of ONE constellation from my standard set of four. multiples are available as well, see pricing below and please convo me if you're interested in multiples....

the stars tell stories of ancient myths involving monsters, loves and animals fixed in the night sky. i remember learning about these stories as a child and they still captivate me as do the graphic beauty of the constellations themselves. This is a group of my favorites constellations stitched ever so delicately...

also...2009 celebrates the International Year of Astronomy as it commemorates the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s use of a telescope to study the skies, and Kepler’s publication of Astronomia Nova. (http:\/\/astronomy2009.us\/)

Frequently asked questions about MiniatureRhino

Sorry! But for right now I only have ten letters A, C, D, E, J, K, L, M, R, S. I'm planning on making the other letters available as PDF downloads. Always happy to hear you'd like a kit, but not sure when I'll have them available.
Right now I'm working on a book! Yay! So I'm only shipping orders on Fridays. Thanks so much for your patience while I'm working my butt off writing and creating cool projects for you to make.
