Robins Test tatting - Snowflakes

It was a pleasure to test tat Robins new snowflake patterns,   I really enjoyed these patterns even though I was struggling with flu at the time,  and there were many days when I never even looked at my shuttles.
These two patterns are called Radiating clovers,  the patterns are clear with diagram and written instructions.
The top one is tatted with Lizbeth no 20 in white.
The blue one's pattern said to be tatted in size 40 to 80,  80 is impossible for my eyesight,  and having just finished the injections I had no idea if I could tat with size 40,   my stock of size 40 is very limited and I had no white so the nearest for a snowflake was this variegated blue,  its an old ball by coats colour number 168, no idea if thats the current number but thats whats on the ball.   My eyesight has improved and I tatted this snowflake without any problems,   I think I will be trying to tat with no 40 again soon.
Now for the cock up I never told Robin but this was my first attempt at her pattern,  I went sailing on, between coughing and feeling yuck,  it was all going wonderful until half way around the second round I look and found I had done seven rings in the middle and not six,   well I did finish the snowflake and to me it looks OK,  OK it has seven arms instead of six but whose counting.
Thank you Robin for letting me test your gorgeous patterns.
