Christmas 2011 Snowflake #1

I love how Tatting Marie decorated her Christmas tree with angels. So I am starting early this year and will tat snowflakes for my mom's tree for Christmas 2011. Let's see how many I can tat before then. They will all be in white thread Size 40. I love how the white threads show up with the dark green of the tree.
Christmas 2011 Snowflake #1 is a pattern from page 26 of Susanne Schwenke's Spitzen-Ideen book. I bought this book for myself for Christmas 2010. This pattern uses two shuttles, done in one round. I was smiling when it was completed. Yes, it is one of those patterns.


  1. Hello Wendy. Wow the snowflake is very very lovely. You do excellent tatting. Hugs judy

  2. I'm happy that I inspired you to tat snowflakes for your Mom's Christmas tree. I know she will love all of them. I'm in the process of redoing the ones that I had stiffened that turned yellow (over 200 of them). My suggestion is to NOT stiffen any.

  3. That project should keep you out of trouble for a while! A pretty beginning.

  4. It's gorgeous! You did an awesome job!!! :)

  5. Hi Tatting-Marie,
    Yes, your Christmas tree was truly beautiful and I was defnitely inspired by it. I just hope that these snowflakes are not too big for her tree otherwise she will need a bigger tree. Thanks for the tip. No stiffening.

    Fox, out of trouble? We'll see!VBG.

    Thank you God's Kid and Typs Tatting. Look out for #2.
