Snowflake #1 for 2007

This snowflake is from the same book as the Pyramid Orchid motif. It is, in fact, on the same page. "Tatting Patterns And Designs" by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson is the book. I tatted it with DMC Pearle Cotton #12. Fooled you! Not my usual Cebelia. This thread is part of my purchase when Hancock Fabrics closed in my neighborhood. I decided I would give it a try and justify my spending. I'm not disappointed with the results and it wasn't hard to tat with. It's a little soft and I will have to starch the motif before using. The snowflake is 2 1/2" inches point to point.

Now, I have to decide whether to add to my Christmas decorations or tat a doily from a 1960 Workbasket. Decisons, decisions!

Now this snowflake would make a pretty design impressed in clay!

Oooh! Very pretty! I love snow! I have a book of Snowflake Bentley's pictures, and I think there are some wonderful tatting possibilities there. I just don't think I'm up to the design challenge yet!

Is there a snowflake challenge that I don't know about, or are you setting goals for yourself? Maybe I should look for my snowflake patterns. I know there in my sewing/knitting/crocheting/tatting/computer room somewhere...

That is so pretty! Did you find the book, or are you struggling with my poorly scanned page?
I can always send more snowflake patterns if you like?

Thanks everybody. I was very glad I found the book, after I had tatted the first motif from looking at a picture of Snowy's. I am enjoying the patterns now that I have broken the code of a new book.
