Christmas Snowflakes number 2







With the second snowflake I therefore simply added the sequins as and when I needed them and didn't bother to thread them on the thread first!

I simply can't keep up with everything you are doing! I'm going to have to find more time to check blogs. The snowflakes are so pretty. I'm going to have to try some sequins!

Okay, I'm a little confused. How are you adding the sequins? I've never worked with them, only beads. Is it a self-join (what I've taken to calling a picot joined its own ring)?

It's similar to a picot join but not the same. I put a sequin/bead onto a needle threader, tat to the point where I need the sequin/bead, pull up a loop of ring/chain thread (not the core thread) put the loop through the needle threader, pull the sequin/bead over the loop, thread the shuttle through the loop now extending through the sequin/bead and finally draw up the loose thread easing the sequin/bead into position, continue to tat the rest of the ring or chain.
I hope this makes sense. I describe it together with pictures in all of my pattern books which can be bought from my web site. The link is at the bottom of my blog.

This snowflake is gorgeous! I reminds me of a pointsettia (sp?). Very festive!

Thank you, Linda. I think that I understand.

I like this! A snowflake that is not white, yet definitely festive!
