When we decorated our tree this year, DH brought me a box I had forgotten about....I knew I had some crocheted things hidden away somewhere but I didn't know where. These are all things I made in the 80s....

I really like these red ones...I love diamond shapes.

This is one of my favorite flakes; I made some more of them 2 years ago and gave them as gifts.

I really like this one too but it's a little large in sz 10 thread.

I remember when I made these I was disappointed in them because I wanted a more snowflake look, but now I think they are really cute.

these next 3 are made from some tiny metallic thread I inherited from my mother. No idea where she got it (in the 60s or 70s) or what's available today that is similar, but I should try to find it at Lacis or some place. I remember I really enjoyed working with it and esp with the beads, they look great on the tree.

this one I think was a gift I received rather than one I made, but thought I'd share as it is very pretty and i like the open look.

Oh, I just love all your snowflakes!! I have the pattern for the last snowflake. I really did like this one. I was going to give my kids and grandkids snowflakes and crochet ornament ball covers as Christmas gifts, but alas, I never got to starch the snowflakes. I guess I have around 300 and some days to starch the snowflakes, huh??:lol

Kathy,
What a surprise! For me it would be like a Christmas present.

All of the snowflakes are beautiful!!!!! You do very nice work and they are all blocked so perfectly.

TLOL,
Toni
TLOL means Toni's Lots of Love not laugh out loud! Thank you Lady Crochat for the great idea!

Very pretty. I need to take pictures of mine, but I'm even to lazy to do that. Maybe before I put them away for another year I will.
