Aladdian Revisited

A couple of weeks ago I some how bruised the back of my right hand between my thumb and my wrist. Although the bruise is gone the spot still remains very tender. I am constantly bumping it against something. That being said, as I am right handed it has been very painful to hold a shuttle and tat. A couple of days ago I decided to give it a try again. It's taken a few different tatting sessions to complete but here is my second attempt at Aladdian from Jon's Snowflake Collection.

I originally posted it here in Sherry's, aka LadyShuttleMaker's size 20 "Spring Poppy" HDT. It seemed to colorful to be a snowflake so I made it again using Marilee's, aka Yarnplayer, size 50 "Snowflake" HDT. In addition to the difference in size, the real difference is how it goes from "motif" like to being a "snowflake".

Off to get ready for work.

Happy Friday all!

I love them both! I really need to get going on snowflakes, but I'm afraid they'll melt in this heat!

Yes I agree the Snowflake thread is much more wintry tho the other is pretty too.

It's a beautiful pattern no matter what color you tat it in.
