Now that Halloween's over!!!


Before I bought the new mac I was working hard on a new pattern.  I haven't rushed things as I knew that all those who celebrate Halloween would maybe miss this post!!!  It's just a small motif but a little bit different, I think.  It's going to be my Christmas giveaway.

As it's quite a 'dense' piece it doesn't really need to be in a metal ring and stands up well 'as is'.  I MAY stiffen it but maybe I won't.  Dithering again, Jane!!!!

I'm still not quite finished with the destructions (whooops, mean instructions/pattern) but I'm hoping to be finished by the end of this week.  Then the only problem will be 'resolving' it all on the new 'toy'!!!!!

It will measure just 3" across when worked in a number 20 thread.  I've made quite a few of them so shortly you'll see lots of samples!!!

I've thought of giving this design a name.  Now, now, don't collapse in amazement!! I did think of calling it a poinsettia!!!  Not sure it's enough like one, though!!!

  1. You could call it a poinsettia snowflake. It looks like a combination of the two. It's very nice, Jane!

  2. I think that is a great name for it. It sure looks like one to me in those colors.

  4. This is really lovely, and I like the variegated thread with the solid green.

  5. It's STUNNING! It DOES look like a poinsettia! I like Tatting Chic's suggestion - it has elements of both - a real multitasker!

  8. Looks like a poinsettia to me! I think it would look great as a stick pin.

  14. I love it Janey, O Janey. I wish I was going to be one of the lucky people to get one of these beautiful piece of artwork. I will have to make my own I guess when you put up the pattern. I really like how you used the alligator stitch in making this flake.
