After a night a gale force winds and rain, at least the wind has dropped, its still cloudy and fairly mild. Up north they have taken a battering with the winds, especially in Scotland, with the first snow of the winter.
Today I thought I would show you the snowflakes I have been making from the new book its from the 20 to make series Tatted Snowflakes, by Jennifer Williams. I have enjoyed this book although I have only made a few so far, the patterns are easy to read and diagrams are easy to read. All the snowflakes have girls names which is nice.
This is the first snowflake in the book called Alison
This is Catrin and is done in two half and then put together, as a Celtic design. I did like this one the on the right is plain white and the on the right is red and white, I have had a red moment recently as you we will see in a future post.
This is Ruth, again I tried the pattern with red and white, I thought I had done it all white but I cant find that one, so perhaps I did not.
All the above snowflakes were made with Lizbeth thread no 20 in white and red.
Many of these snowflakes could be used as pendants, and on page 40 there is a design for a pendant and earrings, which I hope to make in the future. As I said I did enjoy this book and a good book for the tatting library.
Have a lovely weekend and take care
