It's nice to re-visit patterns.  I've been making my way through my pattern book and hope to make some more.  I also spotted little amendments to make so will upload updated versions of patterns where necessary.

This is Céleste with "unarranged" picots
in silver thread and light teal and silver beads
I quite like that slightly messy look.

 Here it is again where I've played with the long picots a little bit
although I realised when I got to the end that I'd forgotten to make one!
Can you spot where?

This is Snowdrop

And lastly I made Twinkle Twinkle with pointy chains
to see how that would look
and I also made my latest snowflake with shorter arms
again, just to see!

Oh, and I got a name for it now!

I called it Qanik
It's the word for "falling snow" in Inuktitut
one of the Inuit languages

I think I will have a little draw... what do you think?
I will pick 5 names at random from comments to this post
to win a copy of Qanik.
... that's if you fancy making it of course!

Draw to be made very soon!

Are you guys busy making snowflakes too?  It's that time of year, isn't it.

Best wishes,


  1. What a lovely snowflake, Qanik! Would love to be included in a chance to win the pattern! Katie V in NC katie at r-v-r dot com

  4. Qanik! One of a billion Inuit words for snow! Love it! 😊👍🏻❄️

  7. Always a delight to see where your imagination takes you. Your snowflakes are my "go to" patterns for gifts. Sillystring

  8. I love the name. You outdid yourself on this one. It's gorgeous!

  9. Beautiful as new fallen snow! I like it!

  10. A fresh snow fall of snowflakes, I love them all but your new snowflake is definately a winner.

  11. Es sind alles wunderschöne Schneeflocken. Bei Celeste 2 auf der linken Seite fehlt das lange Pikot. Stimmt es so? Qanik ist mein Faforit.
    Danke fürs Zeigen

  12. I love your tatting and love these fresh snowflakes. I did not notice the picots missing until you asked if we could see them....took me quite a while to see it because it is so the fallen snow. 😉

  13. Love your snowflakes! Sure would love to tat them, thank you!


  14. your snowflakes are so lovely and perfect gifts for the snowlovers in my life. Thank you for sharing your awesome talents!

  15. They're beautiful! Yes, I'm going to be making a bunch of tiny snowflakes, and I think I'm planning to use one of your patterns, Twinkle Twinkle with the pointy chains, if I can figure out how to do a SCMR.

  16. Taking a break from snowflakes for now, but will definitely tat this one when it is ready!

  17. I am currently working on Robin snowflake set. This lovely pattern would make a nice addition.

  18. Love your snowflake patterns! Must tat some for our Christmas tree :).

  19. I never tire of tatting your snowflakes.

  20. As always, another fantastic snowflake! I've been checking your blog often to see this year's version. Thank you for so many lovely patterns with such attention to detail in each.

  21. I love all your snowflake designs... and Quanik is another lovely flake!
