Xmas Decorations

My friend asked me to make some beaded decorations for her tree.  She said it is just a little tree, and she wanted blue and silver to match the other decorations she bought.  So, I looked through my collection of Sandra Halpenny snowflake patterns and picked two.  She makes the greatest snowflake patterns!  And her directions are easy to follow, with good diagrams.

Anyway, here are my snowflakes.

Then I wanted to make her a really special ornament, so I chose Paula Adams' Pagoda pattern.  It was pretty easy to follow as well, though I wouldn't recommend it for beginners because she doesn't include any basic instructions, like 'step up' at the end of a round.

Here is my Pagoda ornament.

My friend loved them!  Yay!
