11th and 12th Day of December - Snowflakes

Back to my self challenge on tatting the 24 snowflakes pattern. So far I had completed 5 snowflakes and 19 more to go. Ain had finished 9 and I am way behind her..*wink*. No rush for me, just slow and steady. I take it as an exercise so that I will not forget. Practice makes perfect. No new technique for me to apply on both of the snowflakes. I prefer to do a simple design as I dont have much leisure time for my hobby nowadays.


Eventhough it is a simple design, I still makes mistakes. For these designs, I had thrown 5 pcs of the 40-70% completed project, because I'm not happy with the outcome. I need more practice on my chain because sometimes it's not even. Till then happy stitching and tatting to all my friends and readers out there. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

I also face problems with long chains, so you are not the only one. Usually designs with long chains need blocking after they are finished. Then everything will turn out okay.
So what do you plan to use the snowflakes for when you have finished all 24?

salam perkenalan...maklang ni tak mungkin akan dapat buat tatting ni...susahnya lah rasanya...

Salmi said...

salam maklang..terima kasih kerana sudi melawat. Tatting nie memula jer susah sikit, tapi lama2 boleh lah. Saya pun kalau projek kecil-kecilan saja mampu buat, kalau yg lebih besar tu, tak terbuat rasanya buat masa nie.
