Tatting: Betsy Snowflake
Well here is the Betsy Snowflake pattern all finished! I've learned from the past snowflakes I've done, that I don't care for using the ends of the tatting thread to create the hanging string. It's too "there" when you look at it on the tree. So I started stringing them using invisible sewing thread. That way all the focus is on the pretty form of the snowflake dangling happily from the tree.
I probably need to revisit the old ones that I used the tatting thread to hang them and put some of the invisible thread on them to string them too. I have 7 hanging on the tree right now and 3 little ones need the thread changed to invisible! So this one will make number 8!
Now it's time to transfer it to my Christmas tree, though I like the way it looks on this little crystal tree I have in my work space that I tied bows of lace to!
