53 Days

Yesterday I made my first crochet snowflake it was also my first time using crochet cotton and using my steel crochet hooks so alot of first's for me. I have had a fear for year useing thread and cotton yarn for years but after useing it I do not know why it feared me so it was really easy to use.

 And here it is after starching.

You can not tell in this photo but the mat I used for starching the colour came out onto the snowflake but dose not matter. I have alot more to make before Christmas. This is the only white Chistmas I'll have since in Australia it will be summer.


  1. That's a beautiful one! If snow doesn't come from nature, you have to make it yourself ;-)

  2. Turned out lovely. I think I'd like to try a few this year too. I'm with you, the only ice I want to see at Christmas is an ice cream!
