Five completed Teneriffe medallions. These are all made with the lighter thread, using the stitched framework. When I finish a medallion, I cut the framework threads from the back of the template, pull the lace off, and cut the central thread that I started with as close to the lace as possible.

Not much danger, no.  Since the center of each snowflake is a tight weaving, and you pull the circle tight as you go around, the loose end is pretty well clamped in place.  The only way it'll come loose is if you find the spoke on the edge that corresponds to the loose end (i.e. the first spoke you wrapped) and pull pretty hard to yank it out of all the knots and weaving. That's unlikely to happen in normal wear and tear. 

If you want to be extra secure, you could take the loose end in the Center back and weave it into the rest to hide it before cutting the excess away.  A dab of Fray Check (liquid nylon) in the center back would probably work, too.

Congratulations!  If there any danger of that beginning thread unraveling the whole thing?
