Two more tatted snowflakes IN COLOUR!




The first one is Sherry's hand dyed "grapefruit" with DMC pink for the rings. I'm going to have to work all of my DMC and Flora threads into my tatting somehow. I can't just waste them and they are lovely in their own ways. However, I have joined the club of "Addicted To Hand Dyed Threads." I guess we just need to abreviate it to ATHDT! The pattern is from Bestitched. There is a link to their website on my sidebar.

The second snowflake is Flora variegated with DMC chains around the outside. I had the,(I think), bright idea to do the block tatting in the Flora. I really like the way it looks. Bill said that it really looks like a flower.

I'm still having fun!

Laura, I love the purple one it reminds me of a passion flower. do not be embarrassed about joining the ATHDT club it is perfectly normal and is a wonderfully enjoyable addiction. It also adds a whole new dimension to your tatting. ( This coming from a fellow member )

Thank you Clyde. Do you mean I won't have to go into a recovery group or anything like that? LOL
I'm glad to know I am in such good company.
Thank you Arlene. I'm enjoying the hand dyed threads ever so much!
