About Me

My photo
I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-) I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.

Another Snowflake from Jon's Challenge

I have finally finished tatting up Frakira's (from InTatters) version of Jon's Snowflake Challenge.  I SO love Celtic Tatting!  I tatted this one up with 3 different colors of size 30 thread.  White for the first row, Variegated Blues for the 1st 1/2 of the second row and Blue for the 2nd 1/2 of the second row. 
I really LOVE how many wonderful patterns are coming out of Jon's Snowflake Challenge! Keep your eyes out as I will be tatting Tatknot's version as soon as I get done with another of Yarnplayer's doilies that I am tatting.


  1. Turned out great. I, too, really enjoyed tatting frakira's pattern. It will be late this evening before I have a chance to put the outer round on my tatting of your version of the challenge. I hope more tatters take up the challenge, don't you? Did you use the same size and brand of thread for this one that you used for your own version?

  2. No, I believe the thread I used for my pattern was a size 20. I don't have any good white in size 30...need to get some.
