"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."

Someone Liked My Pattern!

Melissa B. sent me a picture of the snowflake she made from my "Angels in the Snow" pattern. It's gratifying to know that people like my design enough to want to make it, and that my directions are comprehensible. Melissa has kindly given me permission to show her flake.

She used Lizbeth "Rainbow Taffy", and I must say it looks very pretty. I hadn't thought to use a rainbow colorway on this design, but it actually works really well.

Lovely work, Melissa!


  1. It sure does! Very pretty.

  2. It is a pretty snowflake design. As soon as I have a few other WIPs done, I'm going to give it a go as well. The colourway that Melissa used does work well with your design.

  3. I like the pattern too; even though it has all those SCMRs that I'm just learning ~ I can do them; but have to do them slowly! LOL
    Part of the learning curve. This has been one of those weeks that tatting just doesn't want to work; so, have this on the back burner until I get this "ummmmuffflegruffle" bookmark done. LOL

  4. Thanks for your kind words about my rendition og this "Angels..." pattern. I really love your pattern- it's such an elegant design.
