Snow already??

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I went hiking with hubby this weekend and it snowed on us. I decided to go home and make a snowflake to celebrate. This pattern is from DMC's Tatting for Today #15209 "Tree Top Ornament", Pg 6.
I have to say that it wasn't all that fun to tat, I started to get really bored half way through but I think it turned out well. It is a very attractive pattern.
I tatted it for a specific reason which I will share later.
Does anyone know the best way to stiffen this piece?

What kind of thread did you use and how stiff do you want it? There is information on stiffening on my blog. Just click on Blocking and Stiffening in the links list on the right.

Thanks Sharon,
I remembered that I had read it somewhere before but couldn't remember who posted it.
Thanks for the reminder.

I'm glad you finished it. It is very pretty and your work is always so nice. Sharon is the absolute best for stiffening advice!

Your snowflake is beautiful! I love the blue... it makes me feel like snow could be on the way. I love snow days... my friend Shari and I always get excited when we see the first snow flurries of the year! I can't wait for colder weather!
