Snowflake window...

Would you like to look out my kitchen window?  Ok.  First you have to look at the pretty paper snowflakes and then you can focus past them to the bright, snowy landscape.  The snowflakes also stand out beautifully with a black night backdrop in the evening.  I cut these snowflakes from coffee filters but you can use ordinary copy paper.  Then I sewed down the middle of them leaving some space in between each by sewing and pulling the thread through and then sewing over the next snowflake.  Here's a link to Dave's Paper Snowflake Patterns to get you started.

I have a special Christmas carol to share with you, sung by the Pentatonix.  This a capella group won "The Sing Off" a year or so ago.  I loved them and continue to appreciate their music -- all voice, no instruments.  Pentatonix has a new Christmas album out called PTXmas.  I just downloaded it via mp3 this morning and I love it.  Enjoy!

  1. I think you have to have the still fabulous black window frames for such beautiful snowflakes- and the huge landscape beyond as well!

  4. You live in a winter wonderland! We have a bit of winter, too, but it is not as pretty as yours. I heard this song the other day and it was fascinating to watch them sing it.

  6. These are so lovely. I haven't decorated yet but I love to hang my snowflakes from the family room ceiling fan blades. It's the closest we get to snow!

  7. How beautiful is the song; I sat here and cried for the beauty of it, their voices, the love in their eyes. Jody, thank you so much for introducing me to this group.
