Singapore has been my home for 27 years, longer than I have lived in the country where I was born. Red and white are the colours of the Singapore flag. So I have tatted these two snowflakes in honour of today. Both patterns are from Lene Bjorn's '24 Snowflakes in Tatting' on pages 16 and 17: The 8th and 9th Day of December.
The first one is done in red (Coats 40, Shade 700). This thread was gifted to me by Gina. Notice the pattern in the negative space.
The second one is done in white (Milford 40).
Both snowflakes were so much fun to tat. I think the design is just ingenious. Do try it if you have not done so. It looks more difficult than it is.
