#24 of 25 Motif Challenge

I can't begin to tell you how often I tat something to give away and forgot to take a picture or scan it. Well not this time.

These snowflakes are Jon's Quantiesque Snowflake. I tatted them using Pamela aka Tatskool's size 20 Rainbow Bright HDT. They are done with the 2nd round made from the solid yellow and the solid red HDTs from Pamela's Rainbow Bright HDT, this way the colors match perfectly. (I especially like when coordinating solids are offered with the HDT. I feel that in a pattern such as this it helps to show off the workmanship.)

These 4 were created in one quick weekend to give as Thank You gifts to the girls at work who covered for me while I was out for 3+ weeks in January.

Over the last couple of weeks I have done this pattern twice more and I have enjoyed every minute of working with it. I'm going to have to make at least one more of these ............ for me. :-)

Jon, Thank You for a great pattern!

Happy Tatting,

Your snowflakes are nice. Pamela will be thrilled to see her favorite HDT all tatted up! I love Jon's Quantiesque pattern, too! :)

Very pretty! And I've just figured out where to use my HDT's. Not the snowflakes but something else. Thanks for the inspiration!

Bonnie, these are so pretty! I'm still on my doily binge... I guess I'll have to start working on the T.A.T. program again if I'm ever going to complete it! How about you? ; )

These are beautiful Bonnie!

Wow, glorious. I am busy in my 'dyeing studio' making lots more Rainbow Bright in 20, 40, 60, 80 and even 100.

I have even started tatting with it again, after my Christmas marathon I thought I would never want to use it again, but not so...and I even have the perfect repeat again!!

Mmm I am so far behind in my Tat artisan that it's laughable, just can't do everything.

Beautiful tatting Bonnie. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you join us for the puzzle swap. A piece of tatting on a plain fabric puzzle would be gorgeous!
