It's Snowing


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?



This one is of my own design, as is the next one.  Once I got started, I was on a roll.



 So, partner, I hope you like them.
