Igoya, my twin sister, granted me permission to post this image. She created it from a photo of an ice-glazed holly bush in her front yard, using a software program called Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.
Does this image inspire you? It inspires me. Wouldn't it make an amazing tatted snowflake?
If you think this image should be made into greeting cards, please leave Igoya a comment at her Etsy shop or here.
For Tatting Tea Tuesday, I'm working on partridges
and Wendy Durell's 4 Ring Snowflake while sipping Snowberry Tea.

This auspicious flake is the first one I have ever attempted that actually was completed in time for holiday gift-giving.
It was made using "Signature" thread from Japan. It is a long staple Egyptian cotton quilting thread that comes in several solids as well as variegated colors. The color is M07 - Pastels. It is pale enough for snowflakes, but would also be divine tatted up for baby.
I am counting this snowflake as motif number six (6) in my 25 motif challenge.
Wishing you all blissful me time to create something beautiful. See you next Tuesday for more communi-tea!
