The snowflake

It's done and dusted and floating in cyberspace in all it's 'glory'!!!!  Here's the link.

In the end I changed the orinal pattern slightly adding some very small picots to stabilise the points on the SCMR's.

Then I did two versions using two colours and a split chain and two SSSR's.  Sounds complicated but I'd rather it be seen as 'stimulating'!!!  Obviously you can avoid the  split chain and SSSR's if you really, really love cutting and hiding ends!!!  Is there anybody 'out there' who does?!??

Here's the final of the final of the very last one.  Least I think it will be but I keep wanting to make them so we'll see!!

I would love to contact Gina Shilitani but each time I reply to her email message it bounces.  Any help would be appreciated - I'd hate her to think I was ignoring her.

Finally my apologies to people to whom I haven't replied to messages on Facebook.  I heard the other day that some messages could be found in the 'other' box and darn me - so there were!!!  Some were SO old there were mushrooms growing on them!

Lovely! I so want to get back to snowflakes... must finish this hanky edging by Friday morning. I'm thinking of never taking on a large project again... at least not one with a time crunch. : )

Let it snow!

This is interesting. When I guessed how to do it, I put the SSSR as the first element after the central ring, ended with a regular chain, and then started the next multicolor ring with a small SSSR. Thanks for the post!

The colours just jump out at you!

Ah, Susie, there are several ways to do this motif. You could start with a SCMR but that would make the centre the same colour as the rings on the first round. Actually it would make a good challenge to find out how many ways there are to do this!!!

Once again, Jane, thank you for your generosity! This is a lovely design which is bound to give much joy. Merry Christmas!

These colors are so vibrant and attractive! You keep leading us in new directions and challenging us to try new techniques - and color 'manipulation'! Wonderful!

I still can't fathom how you accomplish all that you do!
