it's a pretty pattern but I can see what you mean about it flopping lol........ hope you got through the winds yesterdayTilly
Apart from nearly being blown off my feet when I was out shopping, no damage so at least we got through the storm ok. Hope you did too.Margaret
Beautiful snowflake Ginny♥
I'm finally here Margaret, so sorry...again...I love this you clever woman, it's just so pretty, I understand the 'floppy' problem, but it looks gorgeous.xx
I made that one last year, and it did require a double dose of stiffer. It is very cute though, and I think I felt the same way, I wonder if done in size 80 would make it any better :)
I don't think any size of thread would make it any better. I thought I might try making a center for it, won't be this year.Margaret
It does look too open in the middle, what a shame. I remember one Anna Burda had needle lace in the middle of tatted motifs, perhaps you could run threads across the middle with a needle?
Another gorgeous snowflake design Margaret!!Kevin xx
I would suggest stiffening it with the white glue, then hang a charm in the middle, like a crystal snowflake or a metallic doodad, or an angel charm, or even a small tatte motif. I often make snowflakes and suncatchers like that.
All your snowflake are so beautiful!! :)
I do hate it when the most lovely designs are too open to hold themselves together! This one is beautiful to the eye even though it does flop.
I agree that the center is too open, but it is still very pretty! Maybe it could be used as a drape over a ball. It would also look nice stitched onto a blouse.
