We now jump forward to Part 3 of Tatted Flurries by Sharon Briggs.  Crystle is a snowflake that can be made in the singular, or as two joined flakes.  This time, tension was not an issue (good thing – I was on the verge of despair), but the piece did not look very promising until it had been immersed in a solution of Epsom salts and shaped over a 90 degree edge.

As a matter of fact, all the road kill flakes perked up considerably when subjected to the Epsom salt bath; and they are currently adorning the Christmas tree, which I shall show you tomorrow…

Wishing you all a very happy holiday weekend!
