A Small Flurry

Well, I stopped tatting a snowflake a day after Christmas, because I had something else to focus on. But that doesn't mean I stopped tatting snowflakes! Here are a few more that fell from my shuttle at a slower pace in the last two weeks:

The top left is a Vida Sunderman flake, called Jingle Bell Snowflake; the top right is the trusty Minaret (also VS); and the bottom is a lovely vintage design which Gina the Tatting Goddess rewrote in modern terms. I love this pattern so much that I can only find one problem with it: it has no name. Since I'm tired of describing its origin every single time I refer to it, I have decided henceforth to call it "Gina's Snowflake".
