16th Day of December Snowflake

The Sixteenth Day of December 
from Lene Bjorn's 24 Snowflakes in Tatting
Lizbeth size 20
Finished diameter 9.5 cm or 3.75 inches
Motif #10 for 2nd 25 Motif Challenge of 2016

If you look closely, you can see I still struggled a bit with the tension of those long chains, but I'm content with it for now. 

This is another of the items I finished while my computer was down last week. Unfortunately, the wifi issue has returned. I'm online now with a cable stretching from the router and across 2 rooms, but that has to be taken down when the little ones are here. 

Happy tatting!

That's a pretty snowflake! I also struggle with long chains. There must be a secret. If you figure it out, please let me know!

Another snowflake, looks lovely,
I have not started this one yet, I have picked up my UFP, which perhaps one day might get finished
I think the prospect of more long chains is stopping me

I continue to find long chains daunting. For some projects, gently packing my stitches before joining seems to work, but it doesn't always work for me as you can see. Margaret, I hope you find the inspiration and encouragement you need.

That's an interesting design, but it makes a pretty result. Long chains can be a bear.
