Tatting gifts as fast as possible

Remember the earrings I tatted for my mother-in-law(http://hiskid66.blogspot.com/2010/12/trying-to-get-tatting-time-in.html)? I was going through my notes on the requests I had and realized I messed up. She had wanted hers in blue, so.....I gave the black pair to my Pastor's wonderful wife, and got busy yesterday and made some blue ones for my mother-in-law and placed them in an origami box I just made. These are done in Lizbeth size 40 Royal Blue.

Next...my husband loves my tatting and made a complaint about the fact that everyone is getting something tatted and he has nothing, so.....here is his gift. Mary Konior's Large Cross done in size 10 Navy thread. He is still wanting a tablecloth and I am doing my best to come up with a way to make one starting in January(maybe it will be his gift next Christmas).

Those are great earrings. Isn't is nice it's so easy to please your spouse? And he wants something that you've made - isn't he sweet?

The tatting is lovely, but the origami is icing on the cake!

do you have the pattern for this cross I have been looking and can't seem to find a pattern for a needle tatted cross

Hi Jackie Vene,
The pattern is Large Cross from the book Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. I hope that helps! :)
