A sweet design from my new little booklet with designs by Debbie Munoz. All of the designs have rose centers with various outer rounds that form snowflakes.
I wanted to practice rosettes, which for some reason have been an on-going challenge! And, I'm still working on my block tatting; consequently this pattern fit the bill. All of her snowflakes are easy to do and have the same center. After doing one the rest come quickly!
This was tatted in Lizbeth Snowy White in size 30.
Remember what I said about the design-tat class I was perusing? That little number in Chocolate Raspberry (Pamela Myers HDT) is my design. I'd love to see this tatted by someone else, as I was so distracted with writing the pattern, trying to learn a design program (I never conquered it); and just 'catch up' with the class. The 'lotus' on the four ends are too crowded and I don't like my rings that turn inward and my chains are sloppy; it was 'free tatted' and the first attempt. Guess I should tat it again! LOL I'm now in official 'lurk mode'. Many entered the race but fewer are finishing! It is a great class; but, be prepared to do a great deal of homework! I received the critique of my drawing (done with Paint) and lets just say it was less than stellar. I also tatted Pamela's design which I'll scan and share later.
