Image hosted by Photobucket.comHere are two 3-d snowflakes I finished tonight.  They didn't block well at all and so they look really tweaked but as these are my first attempts I will consider them good enough.  I used a silver metallic thread and the other is white.  I got the pattern from a snowflake kit I purchased a few years ago from Herrschners and finally had a reason to give them a try.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThese are the snow flakes I made the day before yesterday for the CAL at Crochetville.  I have a few more patterns  for the week long cal to get thru still so there may be more postings this week although come to think of it I have a couple of races we're going to Friday and Saturday night so don't really know how many I will get done after all.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHere is the swan bookmark that Kathy over at Crochetville made a pattern for.  It was a really easy pattern to follow and turned out pretty good.  I think if I make a couple more they might turn out better.

Well thats about it for now hope you all like them.

Mary, great snowflakes! And the 3D ones are awesome! I've been wanting to make some of those. Do you know of any online patterns or I wonder if we can only get them from a published leaflet/book? The Swan Bookmark is beautiful, too! I LOVE SWANS! I'll have to run over to Crochetville and check that out! :)

Hello from your Autumn SP! Your snowflakes look great. I really like the beaded ones too. I was admiring those when you posted them on the CV show and tell page. And I really like the swan bookmark! You do great work.
