First Snowflake of the Year

Well it seems my near reclusive life has become a whirl of activity the last little while. I find myself saying I'll get to the bead table for most of the day today, and then finding myself spending the day on things totally non bead related, but it's good to shake things up some. Hopefully things are going to slow down by next week and I can go back to being a hermit and only communicating with people via computer.

2012 First Snowflake
I love working on Christmas ornaments this time of year. It's 100 degrees before noon and I'm suffocating. Working on snowflakes helps me cool off. Yes, I AM very susceptible to suggestion.

Here are a couple of pictures of my first prototype this year. Still needs some tweaking, but I've got a good start on it. The first picture is backlit only so the white beads look dark, but you can see how the twins and 6mm catch the light.

I started the pattern this morning and am stumped at the beginning of round three. I'll have to work the first two rounds again so I can see where to go from there. I know I've taken the third and fourth rounds out numerous times to get the effect I have now and I'm still not 100% satisfied with it.

Well now it's back to beading and drawing. Hope to have the pattern finished by Wednesday or Thursday.
