New Window Stars...and Looking to the Future

I've been working on a few items for my shop, Harvest Moon by Hand recently. One of the items that I created was a new window star in shades of deep blue and emerald green.

New window star that was created this weekend.

By cutting the paper in a different size than what I've used in the past for this particular pattern, I was able to come up with a new pattern.

I like how a simple variation in the size of the paper
can result in a completely new look for the window star.

I enjoy trying different sizes of paper and patterns to see what new window stars will be produced. Despite trying to create new stars, it's always fun to revisit patterns as well as familiar colors.

Holding the star up to the light to see its pattern.

The red window star (above) reminds me of the beautiful maple trees and sumacs that are covered with their brilliant fall foliage.

As the leaves fall to the ground, it is a reminer that autumn will be soon behind us and the Christmas season right around the corner.

This is the busiest time of the year, but also one filled with tradition, family, and wonderful memories.
