Final version!


Now you've seen the original done on the CD and the one with the gaping hole in.  So, here's the new version done round a bead!!!!  Bit of a change, eh?

The pattern is now available here.  It's a really, really simple one with just rings, chains and the 'odd' split ring.  This design just begs to be used with colours.  Any and all colours.  These have been done with just two but you could easily use four in each motif and I've a feeling that's what I did with some of the original ones.

Naturally these are using Lizbeth colours too.  I'm hopeless at putting the names to them but I assure you that they are Lizbeth.

I may have to continue sorting and cleaning in my sewing room. I know I have lots of beads in there just waiting to be added to some tatting, and this looks like something I could achieve. Thanks for sharing the pattern, Jane!

Oooo, nice! I need to make a trip to be bead store for some flat beads. I don't have ANY -- can you imagine?

Love the beads in this. The central flat one makes it!

Kathy Niklewicz said...

This is a perfectly proportioned snowflake, nicely 'filled in' with tatting, and the center bead is the finishing touch! So many possibilities with this great pattern, plus thread colors and beads! Again we thank you for your generosity!

What I'm curious about is how you attached the other snowflakes to the CDs! Sally said she 'cut hers off' the CD. Does that mean there was a duplicate snowflake on the other side? That was a lot of tatting, and I'm sure they got a lot of attention!

Hi Kathy - if you look at the bottom of the original pattern you'll see how I strung them together!!!

The bead in the center just gives the kick to this nice pattern.
I love it.
