hidden addiction

She's done it again! First earrings, now ice drops - all adaptations of the Hidden Rose snowflake.  I'm sure you, too, will find Krystyna Mura's ice drop variations absolutely stunning. Margaret Davies has done an ice drop adaptation earlier and shared her pattern here

In the first ice drop adaptation, she modified the pattern a bit to add the cabochon in the center and beads around it. Hence the front (top pic) and back (next pic) are slightly different.

In her own words - "I am crazy about this pattern and I can't stop tatting it"

Her 2nd adaptation uses 3 shuttles with a rose cabochon in the middle and if she hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have noticed - there are Seven repeats!

What a cute rose cabochon! Krystyna tells me this flake was gifted and her friend loved it.

I come across several models on facebook, and would've liked to share them all. At least half a dozen tatters have made this particular snowflake multiple times (read 6 or more)! It gladdens my heart so.... But wait there's more ....

If you remember Anita was going to teach her heart adaptation from this snowflake at Palmetto Tat Days this year. On her return, she graciously sent me a copy of the pattern to share with you! So now, you can easily download this single page pdf instead of tracking my blogpost.

 Hidden Rose Snowflake Heart pattern pdf by Anita Barry. In fact, she tied a tassel and it is a cute little bookmark.

    1. You did a fantastic adaptation into an ice drop, too, Margaret! It's nice to have recognition of this type, even though some don't even consider it technically a snowflake ;-P

    1. I'm sure Krystyna and Anita will appreciate your (and all the above) comment, Sue. :-)))
      For a phase there, your comments were going into my spam folder (despite repeatedly marking them as Not Spam!). Fortunately I make it a point to check before deleting and could rescue them.
      Thank you for taking the special effort, Sue - I truly appreciate it <3
