I stopped into to Wigwam to a cheery fire going on and a lesson in making German Stars.  Marie on the right is originally from Germany and was sharing a little of the traditions of Germany

Gail working on her correct folds

It was quite a work of art

However I know the real reason they were laughing and gathered around the table.  They claimed it was for the German Stars but I know….

Family sharing and times around a kitchen table with German Stars and bottle of wine is what unplugging and being up north is all about.  The Voight family never has a problem doing this and I admire them for their ability to find the spirit of being up north every time they are here

Thanks for sharing Marie and this German Star will grace my Christmas tree for many years to come.. and maybe at Memorial Day Weekend I will bring the bottle of wine and get a lesson too
