Snowflake House

This is where my rainbow snowflakes live in the "off season." They have started to overlap! The white ones are wrapped up, but I can't stand to put these away.

I wonder how many more I can add before Christmas?

I got to visit a bead shop this weekend for the first time in years! I bought some red and purple vintage seed beads that I think will make lovely purses and dragons!

Tat, tat, tat!

Quite a collection. Knowing you
you'll probably do two or three
times as many as what is showing
here. They are all so pretty.

My oh my, Laura, soon you will have to start charging admission to your "tatting gallery permanent exhibit" :-)
What a lot of gorgeous tatting to see!

Steph's (tat) Stuff said...

That is so cute! I really need to get Jon's book.

Tattycat said...

Thanks Madeline. Maybe not three times more, but maybe two!
Admission huh? You might have an idea there Yarnplayer! LOL I just love looking at my tatting, especially all of the HDT!
Thank you Steph. Yes, you do need to gt Jon's book!

A real feast for the eyes. If you make some more, you can get then framed (like a collage, maybe) and hang it on the wall in front of your favourite seat.

That is soo impressive! You have some beautiful pieces there. Yes put them on a dark background and on a wall, one could stare for ages!

Bonnie said...

Beautiful snowflakes.

singtatter said...

Wow, what a pretty colourful collection! Do you starch your snowflakes ?

Clyde said...

Your rainbow Christmas tree is going to be a knockout this year and the envy of the neighborhood. I agree people will be paying admission just to come and see it which is a good thing because then you can buy more HDT.

Tattycat said...

Thank you Jon. They would make a lovely collage, but I so love them on my tree. I'd have to make tons more. Wait, maybe I could do that!
I'm glad they left you speechless Lady Shuttle Maker! LOL
Thank you Snowy. I have enjoyed tatting them. I am going to frame the doilies and cross, but the snowflakes will have to go on the tree.
Thank you Bonnie. I'm glad you like them.
Singtatter, I appreciate that you like them. I will starch them before they go on the tree. I didn't last year, but I will this year. I use glue and water. What a job I'll have!
Thanks Clyde. I am excited about it. Admission - I wonder if I would have to have a permit for that? I could use some HDT money!

I love the idea of the rainbow Christmas tree and the bead shop is making me drool ...again. They are like candy stores

Patricia said...

What yummy eyecandy!!

Have you used the glue and water to stiffen motifs before? I have some stiffened crocheted snowflakes that yellowed...

Tattycat said...

Thanks Pamela. If Bill had not been hovering, there is no telling how much damage I would have done in that bead store!
Thank you Patricia. Yes, I have used it before. I like it because I can wash it out. I don't find it yellows like the old sugar starch. With what are yours starched?
