And the doodads keep on coming!

Doodad Double Dare #4 was from Michelle, and she has finished tatting another gorgeous bookmark with her second doodad. I'm very flattered... she chose to tat my revised version of Toshti by Jon... the one where I joined in the wrong places! Please pop on over and leave a comment about her beautiful tatting!

In the meantime, I worked on another doodad snowflake...

Each of my doodad snowflakes has just been doodling with shuttles and thread. I haven't looked at any snowflake patterns, although I have tons of them. I guess I wanted to see what I could accomplish on my own. I started this one before re-tatting my first six snowflakes without doodads. When I picked it up to work on it again, I realized something very interesting...

It's almost the first round of Norma Benporath's Lace Mat that Jon is using for her tat-along! Honest... this was just a doodle! Still, I'm considering it to be my Norma Benporath inspired snowflake!

Here it is, beautiful little decorative hook included, ready for fund-raising! With that pretty hook, I think I should call them Santaflakes!


  1. Perfect! Just look at all the designing you have done over the past few weeks! Impressive!
    Fox : )

  2. Gorgeous....are these hooks called the S-Hooks? I went to a bead show yesterday (my first one). I could not find any doodads there. BTW, I still have not done anything with your doodad. I first thought of earrings but after seeing your snowflakes, I am tempted to go that route.

  3. I like all your spontaneous snowflakes. Yeah for doodling.
    I have those same hooks. I took a look at the link you provided and bought some too.

  4. What about "Santaments"? It's like ornaments, Santa, and sentiments all rolled into one! (I couldn't resist...).

    It's beautiful no matter what it's called or who inspired it! ♥

  5.'s fun to play, I often see similar designs after I have done something that came from my own head and hands...interesting I think.

  6. Gorgeous, I love the pattern and you must have had the tat along on your mind, it made a gorgeous snowflake.
    You have designed some great little patterns with the doodads.

  7. Your Santaflakes all look pretty great. I love that fancy hook at the top. I've experienced that myself - make something without looking at a pattern and then see someone else has come up with almost the exact same pattern - spooky!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
