Happy Christmas to all! Here's a snowflake that you won't have to shovel, slip on, scrape the car.... it's handmade and here for your to enjoy.
It's an original by Snowcatcher - She's an inspiration and what better way to celebrate this day than to bring in new life. With a wee bit of thread, a hook, and waiting for the bread to come out of the oven, a new snowflake was born.
I have made snowflakes in the past. I've lots of pattern books, plenty of thread, and no plan or organization!! During one of my Challenge days - I was looking for my thread crochet books and viola - I found the snowflakes I made and did nothing except leave them in the book.
Ahh - this could be a challenge for the new year? So I took an old notebook to put the patterns in, found some scrap book paper so I could photograph the creations, and thought about a schedule. How many do I want? Where will I use them? Over what time frame? All good questions - none answered. I'm feeling it would be nice to do one a week?
After a bit of hunting, I found those I made before. A few photographs, copying the patterns for my notebook so I could find them easier - I have found that with the two made today, I have a total of nine snowflakes. Simple math - by October 2015 - I will have 50 snowflakes. That's sounds doable!
I'm off for now - I didn't expect this diversion today - It was a bonus gift to me.
Merry Christmas to all....... and now... Let it Snow!
