Stitching Down of Final Snowdrop

The long stem was made to be sewn down,
I like the sound of the needle piercing the fabric it's like a drum beat. 

I never hid and finished off the ends I kept them long, to sew it down with itself.
Above is the green thread used in the tatting and below is white, from the petals

Had stem too long, so I just bunched it up at the bottom of flower and stitched it down.

Cut out card stock then glue up over half, and stuff with cotton, then glue the rest of way!

I made up a pretty frame I saw here on filorumars blogspot
under the "Quarto" with directions.
You will notice Jon helped freshen the old pattern. 
She made up a large one but the curve works for this too.
There is more to come so stay tuned! 


  1. Eine sehr schöne Arbeit und eine tolle Idee!

  3. That's lovely and the way you showed how you did the picture, love the frame really makes the snowflake picture.

  4. Thank you I am really getting into this framing with tatting

  5. Thanks for showing the steps. It makes it seem much more achievable!

  6. Yea sometimes I wonder if people want to just see the finished product or the steps in between.

  7. Very charming, and it looks like a nice little job, with a lot of variation. Unlike th1.20m edging I am making at the moment. I am so bored with it!

    1. Sounds tiny, what is your edging for or are there any plans for it yet?

  8. Thanks, I wonder if people like to see the steps or not.
