Let it Snow!

Ok, it's not really snowing here in Georgia, but, when I saw the new Blue Ice thread from Handy Hands it just called out to me to make snowflakes with it. I used size 40 thread and they came out about 2.5 inches across from point to point. I've done 2 and I'm working on a 3rd which I will post soon. They look like lovely ice crystal snowflakes to me :-)

First we have Kira's Star

Motif # C2-19



Then we have Eileen Stafford's Snowflake

Motif # C2-20



They are available in my Etsy Shops - http://TattedDelights.etsy.com and http://PeachtreeCottage.etsy.com

They both look wonderful in the 'Ice'
thread. As pretty as it looks, I'm still not looking forward to cold and snowflakes!

They're both gorgeous! I had to comment, though for a different reason: I ordered that thread last night for snowflakes and saw my print out of Kira's Star today and wondered how it would look, so I put that aside so I could jump on it as soon as the thread shows up... Great minds, much? ;-)

It looks lovelier than I imagined! I'm not sure that my own will be any where near as pretty as yours, but at least need now I'll have a better idea of what it SHOULD look like when I attempt it! LOL.

Thank you!!!
