Snowflake Monday

Last week, I fixed the Siglo Snowflake and created a new snowflake in the process. I also fixed the even more problematic Double Dip Snowflake I included with the Siglo pattern, and, of course, I created another new snowflake from that pattern. I was tempted to come up with another twosy moniker because the following Twosday was filled with twos. But Triple Dip is just so cute as a name, and it makes me want to visit Baskin-Robbins for a triple scoop of Gold Medal Ribbon, Chocolate Fudge and World-Class Chocolate. (Oh, man!!! Whatever happened to the French Vanilla?!? My favorite flavor!!!)

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!
