Hot off the shuttles

Here it is, the newest flake. It's not even blocked because the thread broke as I was tying the knot. I always knot my thread ends and then sew them in. This time one of the threads broke right at the knot as I was pulling it tight. So I cut off the other end also close to the knot, but I'm not sure it will hold if I aggressively block it. I think it's cute, but kind of small. On the other hand it's quite dense, so it will hold it's shape.

I might do it again. Or maybe not. . . There are so many things to design, it's more fun just to go on to the next one.

It is pretty!!! :)
And done in red with a yellow center I think it would almost look like a poinsettia flower. :)

It's quite pretty! A few of these scattered on a tree would be quite lovely!

So interesting to follow your design process. And this is another winner! Just have fun and keep designing.

Thank you again for all the work you do with the 25 Motif Challenge. It's wonderful to see more tatters joining up!

Wishing you and your husband a very Merry Christmas!
