Sleeping with the Stars

If you do a Google search, you can find all sorts of crafty things to do with astronomy as well as astrology. Some creative projects involve quilts, game boards, paintings, and so on. Last night I embroidered the constellations representing our astrological signs on pillowcases.

Mine is Gemini, the twins. Naturally, you don’t see the lines between stars when looking at the night sky, but it works for projects such as this so your eye and mind can make the connection.

My husband’s sign is Cancer, the crab.

Together we make beautiful constellations.

Love it!

(Verification word is "ritisti"; must be galactic-speak for "ritzy"!)

Very cute June! My hubby is cancer the crab too -- which I find pretty darn funny!

Those are stellar Junie. My oldest is a cancer, it's a rather good sign I think.
