Motif No. 10/25 - Snowflake Meme, Motif No. 11/25 - A Bunch of Small Snowflakes

I have been working on snowflakes, big and small. This big one was tatted with Manuela 20, and it is about 4 3/4" from tip to tip. I designed this snowflake for Meme for the International Round Robin, so I am naming it "Snowflake Meme".

This is a small one, about 1 5/8" from tip to tip.These are the smallest ones, about 1", and tatted on paperclips. Well, I sketched out the designs and tatted them without referring to any book and pattern, but they are such simple motifs, I wouldn't be surprised if they look like other tatters' previous designs, though I don't think I have come across others tatting snowflakes on paperclips.

Well, I am not finished with snowflakes yet, small simple bookmarks coming next!

Very pretty. What did you use for your background? It looks like a frosty sky.

Beautiful Ellen, I like all the designs.

Thanks, TattingChic, Jon! Had been quite busy to tat and blog much, but working steadily on finishing my exchanges.

Well, TattingChic, the background is a rainbow-coloured parchment paper from Pergamano® brand. I used to do parchment lace before I learn tatting lace!

I love the Meme snowflake. What size thread did you use for the paperclips?

singtatter said...

Thanks, Bonnie, and for stopping by!

Well, Sherry, I used size 20 threads throughout from the biggest to the smallest snowflakes, too lazy to change threads and I wanted to finish up all the threads on the shuttles.

Ellen,
Thanks a lot... it's an honour have a snowflake with my name.
The design is great. Yesterday I receive your exchange. I'll take a picture today and I'll show you all. :))

So glad the package arrived. Well, Meme, this snowflake is my 2nd try at snowflake, the 1st was different and didn't work out. That wraps up the round-robin for me, phew! Did struggled a bit to tat up original stuff, but looking back, I'm glad I did and it's a breakthrough for me. Great to have you as a partner!

Hello Ellen! We mentioned your website in class last night. The snowflake challenge was beautiful. I also saw your decorated paperclips and I would like to ask you to design a set for a lesson for the online tatting class.
