"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Keep 'em coming!

Wow, some of you could hire yourselves out as title creators. I've got lots of great entries so far in the Name That Snowflake Contest. I'm having a great time reading them all. I might have to design more snowflakes to go with some of the titles, since I can't use all of them!

Tatskool suggested it would look good in a pale variegated thread. Well, great minds must think alike, because I was already halfway through this when her comment came in:

Here I used Lizbeth 114, Sea Shell, and 626, Shell Pink Light. It gives it a much softer look I think. For some reason I've been drawn to the more delicate hues lately; this is unusual, because I normally go for the eye-popping colors.

Keep those entries coming! Remember to leave them as comments on the correct post (the one immediately below this one), because I need them all in one place to keep track of them all. And remember the deadline is Thursday at noon Mountain Time. Oh, and it is OK to make more than one entry, but please try to be fair and not flood everybody else out.


  1. Miranda: I really like the Sea Shell color - never mind, I bought some size 20!!! A beautiful tatted snowflake - someday (keeping my fingers crossed) I hope to be able to make something like it : )

  2. Oh, oh, pretty pretty pretty! I like it I like it! I sound like a parrot and I don't care! :)

  3. This colours are so sweet, and the design very elegant.

  4. Well doesn't that go to show, top prove what we have been saying. It's just a case of choosing the right varig for the right pattern.

    We shouldn't dismiss varigs as detracting from every design.

    The thread enhances this pattern and gives it an extra dimension. It's beautiful.
