First of all I finally made the ornament from a kit that I won in a raffle at a Hector Tatting Event from a few years ago. Debbie Arnold is the one that donated the ornament to the raffle. As you can see in the picture this ornament has reindeer charms going around the bottom of the ornament. If you go to Debbie website you will see a whole lot of different charms and they are $1.00 for each so if you want to do an ornament like mine you would need just seven charms and of coarse the pattern from Debbie. All sold on her website here.

You can see that we have snow here in New York. It has been a funny Winter so far where we haven't hardly had any snow...but now that I have typed these words here....I probably just jinxed us.

Also I showed you all some of the snowflakes I have made. In the one picture is the pale blue and yellow flake. It was a flake from Martha's new tatting book. It is finished here inside a bangle. Makes a neat ornament. The thread is from Handy Hands here
The color is called Sea Island Citrus. I did the ornament in size 40 instead of the called for size 20 to make it smaller so it would fit inside the bangle.

Here are some snowflakes I have made. Two of the snowflake patterns are from Martha's new book called "Playing with Picots" book. I think the two snowflakes patterns in the book have got to me one of my favorite snowflakes. As you can see I have made a few of them. I have also made the snowflake by Miranda too. I love this snowflake. I think this is her blog. She has alot of beautiful things on here...check it out.

The one snowflake you see in the picture I am attaching it onto a bangle. It should be almost done. I will try to remember to show it here when I have it finished.
