Winter Blend Snowflake for Rainbow Tree 2008



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.

Thank you Pamela, Diane and Madeline. What's coming next is the same snowflake done in size 20 HDT. I am going to use Sherry's (Lady Shuttle Maker's) Easter Egg with other DMC colors to match. Ooh! I'm going to start that tonight I think. I'm having fun!

Hi Laura,
I love your snowflake a whole lot. It is so very pretty and I want a copy of your pattern when you can find time to get it to paper or better yet...in my email box. Very...very...very pretty!!

Thank you Sherry, Marty,Bonnie and Clyde! (I just had to say that.) I am pleased that you like the snowflake and I will get the pattern out. If this keeps up I'll have to join the ranks of book publishers!
Oh, I forgot to give the size of the snowflake. It is a tiny 3" even though it looks much bigger in the photo.
