This is one of the reasons I have been so quiet. I finally gave in and started stiffening snowflakes. This is the first time I have done this to any of my tatting. I had great misgivings until I got started, but now I like it a lot. I'm going to try and get them all done before I put any of them back on the tree. Poor little tree looks so sad! I am using "Stiffy" from Michael's and a piece of 3/4" styrofoam covered in plastic. I did the first ten last night and didn't wear gloves. My hands are sooo dry. Today I wore gloves!
I can't wait to finish them and get the tree decorated again. I'm not going to tell how many more I have to go!
