Here is the start to my blizzard. Some problems, but they are done.
Top left is Ice Crystal Snowflake by Saundra Hameed: pattern here- http://home.comcast.net/~needlelady50/index_tatting.html
Top right is Threes Snowflake by LadyTats: pattern here- http://ladytatspatterns.blogspot.com/2009/09/threes-snowflake.html
Bottom left is Snowflake on a Paper Clip by Ellen Lai: pattern here- http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2009/ellenpclipsnowflake.pdf
Bottom right is Hearts in a Snowflake by Jon Yusoff: pattern here-
All done in size 10 (cheap! made that point when just barely trying to close a split ring and the thread just pulled apart) white. My Hearts in a Snowflake just didn't work out like I hoped, but I will try again later and maybe then we will see hearts. :) Thanks to all who shared their patterns. :)
The time has come
