Great job, Witt. That's just what I need...a snowflake that won't melt on my carpet. And it doesn't clutter my freezer.  ;D  :blusmoke
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

Oh, thank you very much, MM! I'm tickled to death that you stepped into my boutique!

Thank you, Mystic. That's the kind I like, too! No muss, no fuss.

I really like this snowflake because it is done with one continuous thread. No tie-in's.

I like how the doily thing looks, but the "one continuous thread"
oh my goodness, can you reshape your poem to illustrate that?

now that would be cool, of course we all would know the secret
but still.....

Thanks for dropping in, T.

It's not a doily, but a snowflake about 3 inches like you would hang on your Christmas tree.

I don't know if I know how to reshape the poem.

Hi Witt,

Love the effect of the one continuous thread for your poem and your
snowflake is delightful...tell me, is tatting
in America the same thing as tatting here - Lace making?

Thank you for your kind words, Halo.

OH, YES! I believe Teri Dusenbury is an Australian tatter. Ever heard of her? I may have her mixed up with someone else, but some of the best tatters are from there!!

I don't tatt, but I remember my Grandmother doing it
and I still have some of her lace she made. Just
seeing the word brought back sweet memories for me.
I have been going to ask you about it since we first
played Haiku tag together.

I finished work a little while ago and tag is way out
of my brain power tonight. I'll be back to Haiku soon.

Yes, when tatting is mentioned, it seems to always prompt someone to say, "Oh, my aunt used to do that! or My grandma used to do that!" It was almost a lost art, but then there was a huge resurgence about 10 years ago. Now, it's slowly fading away again. There are a few tight-knit (oops, tightly tatted) groups out there in the world still, thank goodness.

Nighty night!

witty witt,

me lovey both the poems, especially the second one.
Its snowing out here, it went from rain from sleet to snow. The sun has gone into hiding. :)

Huggies and marshmallow chocolate,
me.
