Inevitable Snowflakes

Fall has definitely arrived in Minnesota!  We had a beautiful September, and are experiencing chilly temps in October, but with scattered warm, sunny days.  I really love fall - sweatshirts and jeans, the crunch of leaves underfoot, and the smell of bonfires in the evenings. And abundant sunshine with beautiful leaf color means you-know-what.  Yep.  Winter is coming.  Snowflakes ARE inevitable.

In January, I had expressed my desire to get ahead this year, and make some snowflakes to put in Christmas cards.  I always wait until it's too late to get any made, so I thought I'd try to do two a month all year, and that would give me plenty.  In September, I had exactly two done.  Ha ha! Time to get moving on the goal of 24.  

So, my latest tatting is all snowflakes.  I now have 5.  Pathetic in count, but beautiful anyway!

All 5 are from Jon Yusoff's book Tatted Snowflakes.  I plan to continue with snowflakes from various other sources as well - there are many beautiful patterns, so I don't see the need to do the same one twice.  Yet ;)

I also FINALLY have a couple of wedding photos to share!  I don't believe any of the photos show the sash or even the dress in its entire beauty, but I'll share a few photos just because. I can't believe the big day was already two months ago!

And on this beautiful fall day, my other daughter and her fiance are having engagement photos taken. Their wedding is just one year away!
