  5. Yes, yes, chocolate and snowflakes - a marvelous combination, right?!?

    Shevi, I use plain old Elmer's glue mixed with water.

    Off to make some of that dazzling chocolate go away...

    1. Hi, Patricia, and welcome!

      I have only one of my patterns charted right now. Charts take many more hours to work up than I currently have available. I do plan to chart them at some point, but I can't do it right now, and possibly not while I am working full time. I will try to work on at least one when I can, but it likely will not be until after Christmas. I'm sorry.
