Great minds think alike they say and when I finished tatting this snowflake I looked at Allison's blog (yes she started this challenge) link to her blog she had done the same snowflake, well here's mine,
This is a Celtic snowflake from Jon called Quantiesque snowflake. I quote from the pattern "If you are wondering about the name, here is the explanation for it. I was transfixed by the effects of the centre which is a take of the Mary Quant logo of the 60's. The actual MQ logo has five petals" yes she goes on to say she remembers those days well so do I.

I used Oren Bayen Koton Perle Thread no 8 in white and yellow variegated which goes from very pale yellow to gold. I have not tried off my ends but I hope you like it. Its tatted in two half's then put together by weaving the pieces together and then the edge is tatted around.
