No two alike

I’ve never made crochet snowflakes before.  To be sure, crochet snowflakes are on my to do list, but they’ll have to wait for another year or so before I actually tackle them.  I have the hooks and a little white thread but all the blocking and such seems too involved.  These were dug out of the family ornament box.  We’ve got lots of snowflakes in that box but most of them are plastic or metal. 

I like this crochet one with the flower in center.  But shhh, it’s store bought.     

These two snowflakes below have survived a handful of Christmases and a move.  The stiffener has loosened a little but I think it gives them character.  If ever needed, a little starch and TLC will restore them to tip top shape. 

They were handmade a few years back by a family friend when my maternal grandfather died.  She made a bunch of snowflakes and gave them to each family member.  I’ll always be thankful for her sweet gesture. 

My uncle died a few days ago and it seems fitting that I was preparing to blog about them.  They are tokens of remembrance for a life that has passed.
