Patterns from a Leisure Arts booklet called "White Christmas in thread crochet"

I liked them because there were so many, and detailed like Irish Crochet. Each one took me a day to make, overnight to dry from blocking, and I still have to attach the hanging strings.

It makes me laugh too, because I have a wooden sign over my desk that a very close friend gave me a few years back, it says "All my best friends are Flakes".

Beautiful! Those are heirlooms for sure. You did a great job on them.

That would be cute to give with a crochet snowflake. :yes
