2012 Snowflake Center Accents

Good morning!
I was up late last night with a very stuffy nose and headache.  I didn't get up until almost 7 this morning!  I can't believe I slept in so late.
 
Anyway, here is what I've done with the center of the snowflake design-
 
 
The light in the Atelier was not the best for taking images, but I hope you can see the details well enough.
 
Here is a collage of how I did the center.
 
I took a needle and nymo thread and added more Czech seed beads and a Lotus freshwater pearl.  This is only a suggestion for what can be done to accent the center of the motif.  Exercise your own creativity and play with your bead stash.
 
I will be adding additional tatting this afternoon as soon as we get back from Jocelin's consultation at the salon for her Homecoming hairstyle.  She is so excited!  She is getting a manicure today and will confer with our hairdresser on possible up-dos for her big evening.  Tomorrow she will get the full salon treatment.
 
Well, I am off to pick up Jim's suit from the cleaners and to look at new stoves.  It may be less expensive to purchase a new stove than to repair my old one.  Have a great day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!

  3. Your ability to visualize these enhancements continues to amaze me. And thank you very much for the star pattern!

    I'm sure the Homecoming will be a wonderful evening! One of those 'special' occasions and 'moments to remember'!
