Flutterflake Snowflake


Hi,

I saw this on Carollyn's Blog back in October link to her blog,   I was really taken with this snowflake,  its called Flutterflake designed by Emma Crew.  Its tatted in two different size threads which caused a major problems for me,   one I don't use the very thin thread plus I don't have much in the stash,   and two my eyes really cant see to tat with it.   So on several bright days and I mean the days when the sun did shine I made the butterflies,   it took three days to tat six butterflies with thin thread,   I used some thread that Fox had sent me, quilting thread I think on the card the number is PQ #063, there's no name just a number,  actually the thread is really pretty and made some beautiful butterflies for the snowflake.  The white part of the snowflake is Lizbeth thread no 20 in white,  I still have to sew in the ends at least with the butterflies there was no ends to sew in.
I would love to tat this pattern again but its going to have be a summers day for the butterflies. 
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
                               Hugs
                           Margaret
