I am finding it hard to blog about the things that I am creating lately. I have been making lots of gift for people , but I would hate for them to see their gifts ahead of time so..... I will save all my photos of those projects until all the gifts are dispersed.

This weekend the early morning sun shone through the window and made a lovely shadow above my lovely old block singer sewing machine. The star in the window is from a window star that Lena and I made last week.

Actually we made quite a few. With her broken arm she can't draw or do many of the other crafty things that she like to do. They are made with kite paper so they glow when the sun shines on them.

One of the nice things about making this is that you don't need a whole lot of supplies. Really just paper, scissors, glue and fingers. That makes clean up super easy!

I did do some sewing that I can show on my blog this week. Lena and her friends tie dyed some dog scarves and I serged the edges of all 23 of them. It was a bit repetitive, but it was for a good cause. The girls are going to sell the scarves to raise money to help animals in need.

Love your window stars--you've reminded me that I bought a ton of paper to make these but haven't made any yet!
