OK, so it's Florida and the chance of snow is - well - minute, unlike other areas of the U.S. which are experiencing their third blizzard already this winter. But I an I'm participating in the Trim the Tree Handmade Ornament Swap on Flickr again this year. It is always such a struggle to decide what to make. This year, I decided on snowflakes. These aren't the kind that melt, and they should last a number of years. I have some on my tree that I bought at a craft fair in Oregon thirty years ago. So I've had fun with these this year.
I found this cute snowflake here. I kind of struggled with this one. I made 4 of them total, and I think I only executed one of them correctly. It's so lacy and pretty, that I really like it.
I found the pattern for this one here. This one was much simpler to do - or maybe I was just back in the crochet mode by the time I did it?
So, partner, I hope you like them.
