Rose Snowflake for Rainbow Tree 2008

I have been tatting on this occasionally for a couple of weeks, at least. The center is the same one from Denise Munoz' book that I have tatted so many times, but the leaves are all mine. I wanted to see if I could make up my own outer round, so I just did it. You wait and see - one day I'll start from scratch and do the whole thing on my own! (I hope.)

I was kind of worried about the leaves being too frilly, but I like them. I had first drawn it out to chain around them for an outline, but I didn't like the way it looked. I know in real life rose leaves are not frilly, but in my world they now are!

The red thread is Sherry's hand dyed Red velvet size 20 and the green is DMC Cebelia size 20.

I just got two skeins of hand dyed thread from Sherry today. I hope be tatting snowflakes all year for the next rainbow Christmas tree. Clyde and I definitely have a problem with HDTA. However, we really don't want any help towards a cure!

I think your snowflake is beautiful! I love the frilly leaves!

I think your rose snowflake turned out perfect. I think the leaves are a nice addition to the rose.

I'm so glad you both like it. I have added it to the snowflake table!

This one has really caught my eye. I keep looking at it and I just can't imagine how the center is done. I think the colors over each other leaves it even more suspecious. I will have to try and locate Denise's book. If there is more than one, do you have the title of it? I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Barbara. The centers are really easy once you look at the pattern. I have made about 2 dozen of them. The name of the book is "Snowfalke Roses" by Denise Munoz copyright 2002. I think I ordered it from Handy Hands as that is where I get most of my stuff. Let me know if you don't find it and I'll see if I can help.
