Astrila

This one was a long time coming!  It was the original idea for my 2019 design but somehow I just couldn't get it quite right.  In the end, I finished Calixa first but now Astrila is finally ready (after so many tatted samples, it was a bit mad!).  Sometimes I wonder if some patterns just don't want to get written.

I really wanted it to look as much as possible like the Wilson Bentley photo I had chosen.




And here is the real snowflake photo:



I feel now that managing to publish two new snowflake patterns this year makes up a little for missing out one year and not publishing one for 2018 (though I'm still a bit sad about it).

If you'd like a to win a copy of the pattern, please leave a comment - I'll draw three names on Sunday!

Best wishes,
Frivole

  11. Wow! I have a few books on snowflakes, and I've often thought of recreating them in tatting. However, I've had no idea of how to get started. I think you have done a fabulous job, and I would be thrilled to win a copy of your pattern. However, I will be just as happy to purchase it! Good luck to all!
