Now I made this snowflake some years ago and the earliest I can find it on the internet (via the wayback machine) is 2002 which is nearly ten years ago.
I was looking for a decent picture to put on the 'celebration' link on my pattern pages and couldn't find one anywhere. Then I also realised that I've got this on the Jewellery page as I did make it into an earring too. This led me to make it again (see below) and I then realised why there isn't a decent picture!!! It's almost impossible to take a photo as it's tiny and 3D!!!
So, while I was working on it I did the 'usual' and re-vamped the page too. I also doubled up on the stitch count to see if that would work too and - eureka - it did!!! This makes it a bit larger and ideal for a Christmas tree ornament. I've now got a link to it from the celebration pattern page too and it can be found here. Oh, the larger one worked in a 20 thread works out to about 1 1/2".
