Just a reminder, Jane Eborall will be starting this years Tat It and See (TIAS) this Wednesday!
Since Metro Atlanta is pretty much iced in this weekend (and maybe until Tuesday), I have plenty of time to tat. I saw a snowflake on The Mickey Mouse Club program (Granddaughter likes watching the program) and thought that would be a great tatted pattern. The snowflake has diamond shapes in it. I had seen an article before and after a Google search found it. The author referenced a book by Anne Dyer To Boldly Go Where No Shuttle Has Gone Before. Just so happens I was able to pick up that book at Tat Days last year. Here is my first attempt. I am actually making a star (5 points instate of 6). Pattern is about half done. This will be submitted for Tat Days later this year. Nice technique for making odd shapes. EDIT: Star did not work. Back to drawing board to modify it to a snowflake (6 points).
Just goes to show, you never know when inspiration will come from when looking for items to tat.
