Holly Snowflake


Here it is finished, just in time for Three Kings Day!

It measures a whopping 4 and 1/2 inches across, done in size 30 DMC Cordonnet Special. I used white along with my own hand dyed "Pizzazz" and "Fern".

I do plan on sharing the pattern in some form. More ideas than time, isn't that always how it goes?

Thank you to all who voted in the thread size poll!

Just finished hand painting a new dye batch of thread in all the various sizes listed in the poll. This batch should be dry and up in my Etsy shop on Monday, Jan. 7. I tried to do a few solids from the same dye colors. They may not turn out to be completely "solid" so I may have to resort to the phrase, "desirable variations in shade, characteristic of hand dyeing." Anyhow, they will have come from the same batch, so should coordinate beautifully, at least that's the plan.
