5th Snowflake in Tropicana Series

 


This is Jon's "Radiant" snowflake from her book, "Snowflakes Collection." I really like it in Lady Shuttle Maker's Tropicana hand dyed thread. I had not tatted this one before. I think because of the long picots. It was very simple, however. I just used my picot gauge and made them the size Jon suggested.

I am thinking I will need a revolving tree stand for my Rainbow Christmas Tree this year!

So pretty. Yes, you definitely need a revolving stand. I have one and love it. I purchased mine at Dillard's several years ago at the "day after Christmas sale".

Lovely! Somehow I have the feeling that one revolving tree stand will not be enough!

Your snowflake is so pretty in Sherry's colours. Good idea with the revolving stand. I hope it can hold the weight of all the pretty snowflakes that you have been making. I like your new blog colours. Why am I not surprised with the design, LOL!

Thank you Jon. Your designs are so gratifying to tat. The thread IS lovely too. Oh I do hope one tree and stand will hold all the weight. Snowflakes are very light, you know! So the new blog design doesn't surprise you, huh? LOL
Thank you Fox. Tropicana is a very interesting thread. It has really surprised me with all the variations when tatted.
