Living in Georgia, you never know if it's actually going to snow during the winter. Wind and ice are assured but never fun, fluffy white stuff suitable for building snowmen or making angels.  Undecided

Therefore, I decided to make some of my own, one snowflake at a time. Wink

Here are a few of my newest pieces. A couple of years ago, I bought a booklet of snowflake patterns thinking that they would be a good way to learn to crochet. (Major error there! LOL) Since then, I've learned to crochet so I've been working my way through the patterns bit by bit. My goal is to someday have a couple of dozen different flakes to split among my two kids when they get old enough to have their own Christmas tree.



And an angel just because I was curious...

I never knew you could use hair spray as stiffner. That is really a great tip!

They turned out great! I have a bunch of booklets I got from my grandma that has snowflake and angel patterns but I haven't quite worked up the nerve to try any of them yet. Good Job!
