Blizzard!

I've been crocheting snowflakes like mad this year. Never made any before and then mid-November I suddenly decide everyone I know has to have one for Christmas! They are sooo addictive. I love crocheting doilies and these snowflakes are like little hits of instant mini-doily gratification.

Actually, I didn't succeed in flaking the world - DH's family will be getting 6-packs of snowflakes next Christmas (shhh, don't tell them). With that in mind, I've decided to join
Snowflake Mondays and make at least one snowflake every Monday. By next Christmas I should have a minimum of 51 snowflakes (allowing time for wrapping). Then maybe I can have a few as well. Yes, that's right, all that crocheting and I haven't a snowflake to my name. Oh, not true - I do have the one my friend KC made for me, thank you!

Here's a few I prepared earlier - click on image for online pattern where available (be warned, I tweak):

    Hi! Thanks so much for the welcome to the snowflake Mondays! Your post is my first "non family" related post lol I'm so excited. It's my first blog ever and I love it. I'm trying to learn more each day.
    I love your snowflakes they are beautiful. I hope when it's time to block them, mine look like yours. The thread angels are beautiful and the turkey butts are the cutest looking butts I ever seen!
    Take care and happy crocheting!

    Tina :)

    Tina and Maureen -
    Thank you. :-)

    They are pretty but the credit should go to the designers - they're the ones with the real talent.
