Diane of lace loving librarian posted a tutorial on how to make her ice drops. Basically you capture the stone in lace. This has always been something that seemed too fiddly to me. I did not have much success in the past with attempting a pattern. So I was happy when Diane posted a turorial and I was actually able to do it without too much trouble. The thing to note is that pictures really don't capture how pretty the ice drops are in person.
