Operation Snowflake: Bonus Snowflake for February Finished

Here is the snowflake by Sharon Briggs, all finished!

This one brings my total snowflake count to 17!

I still have a small amount of thread on my shuttles I think I need to tat another small snowflake to use up the thread.  I want to do some more larger ones and want to do a larger one for March.  Maybe I'll start the month off with a large snowflake for my birthday.  My parents say when I was born there was a big blizzard!  So it would be fitting!  LOL

I've been finding so many snowflake patterns that I want to tat that I don't think I'll get to all of them if I did only 1 a month for 3 years!!! LOL  But the good thing is I've been finding it easy to do little bonus ones, so maybe I'll have a huge blizzard by Dec.  I've been compiling the ones I've found online on a Pinerest Board if you are interested here is the link: Tatting Patterns.  The Board makes it easy for me to find the links for posting it when I blog it eventually.  Also it's nice to see all of them in one place, and I can browse which one to do next easily.  I also print them too, because you never know when a link will end up going all those ones that are bad when you go searching for patterns and they have a bunch of links complied that are all no good!!!  So frustrating.

OH and back before I started the Pinterest Board to keep track of the patterns, I had printed one that I cannot find the link for again!  Glad I printed it but wished I had been pinning back then.  I don't know if it's just hard to find or if it's now missing.  It was a PDF though so there is no link info printed on it.  But at least I know the name of it to give credit, but I like to be able to link when I can.  It's a beaded snowflake called "Elaine's Snowflake" so I'm assuming Elaine designed it...LOL it doesn't say on the pattern.  If I get to it maybe someone will recognize it and know where the link is.  LOL  I haven't been wanting to do any beaded ones lately, but I did in Dec.  Maybe the "want-to" will come back at some point.  LOL  I do love a good sparkle! LOL
***UPDATE*** My friend Marie searched and found it!  So if you want to print the pattern now just in case it disappears it is.  It's Elaine's Snowflake by Lily Morales!  Enjoy!  There doesn't seem to be a way to pin it, since the link on Flickr is wrong and Marie did some web digging to find this PDF!  Thank you Marie!

Well now I've written way more than I thought I would!  LOL  Bye for now! ;-)

You are tatting some gorgeous snowflakes! I think I have this pattern, but I'm not exactly sure where it is. Could it be that I really need to clean/organize?
