A Savvy Snowflake

is 'Le Flocon Frivole.'  

The gorgeous blue is a #40 Lizeth, but I lost the label...

This keeping me sane.
 I am still housebound with a virus and getting antsy!
Such a pretty pattern with are enough
techniques to be challenging.

Here is is.
 The 620 Post Giveaway!  

If you like or want to try Finca #12, this is your opportunity.  I warn you - it is a soft thread and  bit fuzzy.  I am giving all it away and there was enough to have two winners.  

The first winner will also receive the book in the photo.  It is a slim publication featuring vintage patterns that I have in other books, so I am passing this along.

If you are a tat-ology fan or someone whom I recognize, you are welcome to participate. Just leave a comment.

The winner (by Random Number Generator) will be announced Wednesday December 7.

  1. Would love to win! I follow your blog. If I find that I do not like the thread for tatting I will crochet with it.
    Blessings,

  2. Wanted to say how pretty le flocon is in the blue you have chosen...love the shuttle too...so wintry and perfect. The thread looks interesting to try...pretty colors...please enter my name and we'll see if I get to be a recipient of those pretty threads to play with :-) I see my daughters school colors in there and that would be great fun to tat bookmarks with for her teachers!

  15. The drawers at home are all tumbled about 'cause I've been looking for those lucky numbers... I'd love to give Finca a try. I don't mind DMC Cebelia, and it's a soft thread. What I really want to know is what is that beautiful blue you're using for Frivole's snowflake??

  21. I am running out of my 'waste threads' that I use for trying out my designs. I could use some of those thread for my new designs.
    But the past few mails from Canada to me have somehow got lost somewhere, so I am not sure if it is a good thing to send them to me, if my name is picked, :(. Rather not risk it at the expense of other tatters, please do not include me in the draw.

  31. Lovely snowflake and shuttle. Even when ill you are creating. I'd like to give the thread a try as have never used it.
    Keep feeling better, Karen in OR, who is tatting Iris's earrings in DMC Perle 12 and wondering if the Finca 12 will work, too.

  32. Mm, I would love to try out the Finca. And isn't that pattern amazing? I think I'm in love. Your blue is a great color for it too.

  33. Please enter me in your drawing. I have never used Finca, and the colors look so delicious! If I find it too soft to shuttle tat with ( I'm notorious for shredding thread) I can always needle tat with it.
