Snowflake Challenge - Countdown to Christmas


Day 23

Gosh only one more day to go before the end of the challenge, time has flown this month.  Todays snowflake was difficult to photo even though the sun was shining when I took the photos,  after days of bad light, heavy and torrential rain,  gale force winds it still has not come out as good as I hoped.
 Its called Swirl Snowflake from the book Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman. I bought this book a few weeks ago and this is the first one I have done,  the middle is very tight and looking back at the picture my picots in the middle are too small and should have been larger.  I did not have time to re-tat it but next time I will do them larger in the middle.  A little cock up that can be remedy is I finished this late at night on saturday.  I found when I photo'd it one of the picots is very large,  easy to fix sew in the ends that I was going to use as the hanging thread, and put a hanging thread on the large picot and put a couple of beads on it to cover the large picot.  It was tatted in Lizbeth thread no 20.
I hope you like this snowflake.
