Snow falls from Kentucky!

And Sharon Fawns is our tatting snow-cloud! Thank you, Sharon! And isn't that a sweet card. I love Mary Engelbreit, and those snowflakes, too!

And it's on its way here for more picture-taking and I'm so excited! Pinky did a BeeeYooDeeFul job quilting it. Wow.

Happy Monday, Sally Biggers!

It snowed in New Mexico!

Miranda Rensberger sent these dainty beauties. The purple one has a special place it's going, too! Very pretty!

Terry McGuffin is our pal!

I adore Terry. I don't know of anyone who doesn't. She's tops in my book. For those of you who aren't familiar with her work, she's Terry the Tatter who writes the most wonderful ornament books. You can visit at her website. Terry has been kind enough to send flakes on the "installment plan". Here is one of her offerings. Look at the pretty card! See that adorable little hummer? Thanks, Terry! This brings our total of "revealed" flakes to 139. Whew!

Let's crank the blizzard up, shall we?

From funny, funny Mary Harris. I have truly been blessed to be involved in this project. I got the nicest notes from the sweetest people. I had *months* where I actually looked forward to receiving mail every day! That's saying something!

Let's get back to business, shall we?

From my dear friend, Sherry. I don't see how she got these tatted with her three grandchildren in her care all day every day. I have a hard enough time with three cats. Well, there is Raymond to think about.

It's snowing again!

Sometimes you meet those tatty folk you feel like you've known your entire life. Marie Smith is one of those people. Better folk just aren't found. Marie sent this blizzard. That's 39 snowflakes, folks - that brings our total of revealed snowflakes to 113. Thanks, Marie!

And all the way down here from Canada, Susan Hamel so kindly sent these beauties.

This brings our total of "revealed" snowflakes to 74. Yay!

It's another Manic Monday. . . . . .

And we have some beautiful contributions by Mary Harris! I love this note, too!

Mary, you are one of a kind. The very best kind. ;-)

Flakes abound!

Hi, tatters!

Today we have another installment from Stephanie Wilson. Note the card of adorableness.

And from Anitra Stone, we have these four beauties. Please observe the size of the snowflakes in relation to the postage stamp. They're perfectly perfect!

This makes our total snow count we've seen thus far 32.

More flakes!

From Katie Verna in North Carolina I received these delicate snowflakes! I love the Leo card!

The Most Unusual flakes...

The Palmetto Tatting Guild sent many, many flakes. The most unusual snowflakes I've received have got to be these that are tatted from eensy beensy ribbon. I have something very special in mind for those.

The others of these are beaded and sparkle like crazy. I believe this puts our snowflake count at 25!

And we're just getting a little warmed up! Or would that be cooled down?

More flakes arrived!

After receiving the flake from Dorcas, a day or two passed. I was beginning to wonder if any more would arrive. The flakes began falling one by one. . .

From Marj Rhodes - these needle tatted beauties!

And from dear, sweet Hope Green in Arizona where it doesn't snow so often...

Welcome to the Tatting Wonderland!

I thought it would be fun to share the progress of the Palmetto Tatting Guild Scholarship Fundraising quilt with you. Georgia Seitz graciously extended the invitation for tatters to contribute snowflakes to be used on a quilt which will be raffled to raise funds for the guild scholarship fund. Snowflakes have arrived from far and wide.

The first snowflake I received came from Dorcas Newkirk. Isn't it lovely? The snowflake is pictured on the navy silk dupioni for the quilt.
