Motif #17 - "Angels in the Snow" Flake
Time to show off my pretty snowflake tatted in size 20 Snowflake HDT by Yarnplayer.

It measures 9 cm. (3 3/8 inches) in diameter and took somewhere in the ballpark of 14 yards to tat.

Tatting Fool (also known as Miranda) offers this dilly of a design as a PDF download for $3 US to help raise money for the Brain Injury Association of New Mexico.

Tatting Tea Tuesday
With the the US Thanksgiving holiday just two days away, I should talk about turkey, the Macy's parade and football. But here I sit, sipping Santa Spice tea, nibbling Pepperidge Farm "Milano Slices" and listening to holiday music CDs while I wind shuttles.

I am trying to stay motivated to tat snowflakes.

What I want to be doing is crafty tatting to decorate satin balls for my holiday tree.

Other tatters have a flurry of snowflakes to tuck into seasonal greeting cards. So far I have completed one. (Hey, I'm not knockin' it. One is better than zero.)

My next flake will be another "Angels in the Snow," but this time adding a few beads. Shocking for me, I know!

Wishing you all blissful me time to create something beautiful. See you next Tuesday for more communi-tea!

The snowflakes looks great. I've been doing quite a few and I think they're already gone, just like the real thing, sent out already. But I have a lot more to do.

My TTT post is going to be late. I'm not used to having to work around a 2 year old - my grandson is staying with us for a while. There are a lot of stopping and starting of anything with him around :-)

Looking forward to seeing either more snowflakes or decorated satin balls, whichever you decide to do!

really nice!

I admit, I like the flake better on the white background - it seems to show all colors

ah, the sounds of holiday music in the air... still several weeks off but I too, found myself listening to the fun while at the office.

It's like I mentioned on the tatting forum - I can almost taste the turkey!!
