Tat along by Renulek (intatters) and snowflake for Sandy Hook School

As our weather slightly improved,  we now having many days of dark and drizzly, I suppose its an improvement from rain.  Floods are going down in some places but the boreholes are so full that they are now overflowing,  with underground water sources being so full that they now making new floods,  so all of sudden many houses are being flooded by water coming back up to the surface.  Its official 2012 was not the wettest year it came second,   2000 was the wettest by 3 mm   In Frome we had 1257 mm of rain,   1000 = 39 inches I will leave to work it out,  I can tell you I am sick of rain, please please could the person who did the rain dance for rain, change it to a sun dance.

This is the tat along mat which Renulek designed from Intatters,  link to her blog do you remember I had started it and posted it on the 28th October,  no I had look it up too.  Well now with Christmas is over I picked it up again but I was  not happy with the second row,  so look what I did with it.........

Its not often I do that,   so here it is with round two re-tatted and with round three done,   its not been blocked and I still have to sew the end in but the days are so dark I have want some better light to sew them in,  its no good trying to do it in night light.  I am using Lizbeth no 20 in Sea Island Citrus thread,   I rather like this thread, its pale and the colours bend in nicely.
The next round is very large and long so its going to take a few days to do,   and I am in the middle of the Mayan Intatters challenge,  more of that to come when my exchange partner receives it.

This is the snowflake I sent to the Snowflake appeal for the Sandy Hook  Elementary School,  they want to do a snowflake scene for when the children go back to their new school on the 12th.   I sent it off on Wednesday and then on Thursday there was a piece to say they have enough snowflakes.  Mine is winging its way over the pond by air mail.  I hope they except it for their display.
This snowflake was one I used on the daily snowflake challenge for christmas its from the book Christmas Angels and other tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn.
I hope the New Year has been kind to you,  until we meet again take care


  1. I did not enter the doily challenge... too much going on! I am still enjoying snowflakes, probably because I'm tweaking the familiar patterns. I so want to have a snowflake-filled Christmas tree next year!

  2. Your snowflake is lovely and the doily will be outstanding. That Sea Citrus is gorgeous!
