Interlocked Snowflakes #12 and #13

I have been practicing the interlocking rings as centres for my snowflakes.  With a little more practice I may get them to form correctly. The first flake also has interlocking trifolds on the end which adds little flair.  Now to keep practicing.

New Motifs #9, #10 and #11.

Well time has passed quickly and we are now at the end of July.  I have done some tatting since I was last here, in between 2 weeks training and end of year paperwork.  First I purchased some threads from Jess at Tatilious http://jess-tats.blogspot.com/  among them was her western red ( I think, sorry Jess I lost the packet) which I tatted into a length of edging (Tatted Doilies and Edgings, Rita Weiss.) then joined into a circle and when I find a centre that it fits, it will be completed.

I am also tatting snowflakes for a project which I will hopefully post about next when I collect some photos.  Here are a few that I have already done.
