This year's snowflake and sale reminder

Each year I choose a snowflake to put in Christmas cards and give away as gifts. This year's snowflake is Snowflake #48 from my latest book Four Dozen Tatted Snowflakes. (The digital book is currently available on Etsy and a print version can be purchased on Amazon)

Most of these were tatted in the summer while I was working on designs for the book. I made a lot of versions with slight variations to try and get the pattern just right. It's been over a month since I've picked up my shuttles, but I will have to start tatting a few more of these to make sure I have enough!

A quick reminder: Wednesday, December 2 will be the final day to get discounted patterns from my Etsy shop. The sale ends at midnight EST, so depending on your time zone you may need to get in earlier on Wednesday to take advantage of the sale.

Etsy Sale

I am having an Etsy sale from now until next Wednesday, December 2. Everything in the shop is 20% off, no code needed. If you'd like to head over and take a look, you can click HERE to go directly to my shop.

A printed version of my latest book, Four Dozen Tatted Snowflakes, is now available on Amazon. Click HERE to get to that listing, or go to Amazon and search for my name or the book title.

I will eventually have copies of the printed book available in my Etsy shop but it may take some time. I'm thinking early next year is a safe bet. If you want to start tatting these snowflakes this year, I recommend picking up either the digital copy in my Etsy shop or the printed copy on Amazon.

Four Dozen Tatted Snowflakes

 My latest collection of patterns, Four Dozen Tatted Snowflakes, is finally available in my Etsy shop. There are 48 patterns plus one sample pattern. The book is currently only available in digital format, but I hope to get a print version made sometime in the near future. It's the first time I will be putting something in print, so it's hard for me to say how long that process will take...maybe by the end of the year?

I often get asked if my shuttle tatting patterns can be done in needle tatting. The answer is yes, but I do encourage tatters to try out some of my free patterns, just to be sure. I've placed two sample patterns from this collection on my free patterns page, and if you can tat both of these you shouldn't have any problems with the other patterns:

I want to thank everyone who helped test tat these patterns for me! I have emailed all testers the link to the ebook, so if you were a test tatter for this collection and didn't receive the link please let me know!

July Update

I've been making good progress on my snowflake project, but still have quite a bit of work left to do. Here's a photo of the snowflakes together:

I'm hoping to have the patterns ready by the end of this year, though I keep finding new things to test or add, which makes everything take longer. I will continue to update my blog as things progress.
