Love Anchors, Snowflake, African doily details FYI


I am calling it a snowflake, and it was easy to do, believe it or not :) (6 sides for a real snowflake) and I really enjoyed the last round it was fun to do. 
This also has enough thread that is is able to stand on it's own

This is by the very talented Teri Ducenbury  free pattern. I omitted the center ring I didn't want to place it in.
It is called Floral Fantasy Motif.



Below is a darling anchor, by another talent, found here frivolenka blog spot I fell in love with it, an eye balled this little charm, I am sure she will get around to the pattern for this little anchor since I am sure I didn't do it exactly right :)



I found this picture and for a few of those rings to keep them from getting twisted up I stuck them to a coiless pin to keep order! 

Also I chose to place my Celtic weaving part on this way I liked the color look

  3. Lovely snowflake and do like the fullness of it, well done with the anchor too you seem to be very good with twisted tattting (probably not the right word!). Jane's wonderful doily is coming on well too.
