Snowflake Countdown to Christmas Challenge - Day 17

Hi
Day 17
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. Link to Jon's blog
 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.
            Hugs
        Margaret
