Hello! Welcome to my blog today! Thanks for dropping by!
Today I have some crocheted snowflakes to share with you.
Our snow has been melting a lot outside and as I looked at our snowmen displayed on the bookshelf it looked like they needed something to compliment them.
We enjoy winter up here in the Yukon, and this is just a fun addition.
I bought some new white cotton thread, pulled out my tiny needle (#7 Milward) and got to work.
There are a ton of wonderful snowflake patterns on Pinterest, but I chose just a few.
Then I hung up the snowflakes above the snowmen,
using fishline and a random branch I got from by the wood shed.
I pulled out a couple of these cool non-marking hangers and stuck them to the log.
The branch set in the hooks nicely.
One thing to remember when tying fishline is to put the line through the loop twice before pulling tight. I suppose if I were a fisherwoman I'd know how to do it without thinking.
They make a fun new addition to the hall and our snowmen display.
It's amazing that these dainty little snowflakes don't take a huge amount of time to create.
I know that you can block them, glue them and other things, but I for some reason like the softness of them just like this. I did smooth them out with my fingers.
Thank you for dropping by, and when you have time,
just think about the amazing detail that God has created in each and every snowflake.
Such a great God he is!
