Snowflake Monday

Siberian Iris and Unity Snowflake Rock

My thumb is doing so much better, but now the world is not. We need more kindness. We need more love. We need unity.

I had planned to make a couple more snowflakes with this pattern last weekend, but I have to make eight more masks for my family and get them in the mail this morning. If a reader would like to submit a photo of their finished Unity Snowflake via Sisters of the Snowflake, I'll be delighted to add it here.

You may do whatever you'd like with snowflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!
