After several false starts, I finally completed my October snowflake for the One Snowflake A Month challenge over at The Tatting Forums. I think I'll make my picots smaller the next time. It looks like I have little ladders for my chains! This pattern is from DMC Festive Tatting, Motif #11. I used DMC perle cotton, size 12, and it measures 3" across.
For some reason, I've been having a difficult time reading patterns for the past couple of weeks. I tried four or five different snowflake patterns before finally tatting one correctly! Maybe this will be my snowflake pattern for the year, and I'll tat the same pattern in different threads instead of tatting different patterns!
I received an email this morning about an article called "40 iPad Apps That Librarians Love." What a great article! I think some of these apps would be great for anyone. If there are any teachers reading my blog, you may want to check it out as well. Now I want to run out and buy an iPad! Unfortunately, it's not in the budge right now, but it sure is fun to dream about!
