Thank goodness not real ones. When I was in Baltimore last January, Amy lent me her crochet book on making snowflakes. I have made 19 of them. I mostly do it when visiting or in the car. The car doesn't work too well because I have to watch too closely as I am an amature crocheter. Anyway I started starching them to hang on the Christmas tree. Last year I bought blue lights and blue ornaments and put white origami airplanes on the tree. It was not a resounding success. Since I bought all the blue stuff I thought I would put snowflakes on this year.
