Here is my first original snowflake design tatted in size 80 hand dyed thread from Yarnplayer and DMC Cebelia. The pretty variegated thread is the HDT.
We are on vacation so I have neither my iron or my scanner, so please keep that in mind. When I get home I will do better on the picture. I still have to transpose my notes into a pattern. You might recognize the outer rounds as one from last Christmas. I had tatted them around someone else's design for the middle. Now, it is all mine.
I am very pleased to have been bitten by the design bug and to be tatting my own designs. Thanks to all of you for your encouragement, inspiration and instruction.
