2011: 25 Motif Challenge- Motif #2

Well, here is a bit of what I have been up to in tatting since my last post.
I just finished this beautiful Butterfly Cross by Ruth-
pattern here:
It's done in size 20 "Sacred Lotus" cotton crochet thread from Crochet4U2Dye4
(I just need to finish off the ends).

Also, I finished the 3 crosses for my mother-in-law, one cross for a friend, and another for the mother of a friend(her granddaughter is receiving the Butterfly cross, and I have to make different crosses yet for her other granddaughter and her daughter).

This picture is awful, but it's the doily I am making and have gotten a little done on it.

And here is the progress on the tablecloth(same motif as the doily done in a different pattern).
It's not quite as long as a notebook folder yet, but I am loving the way it's turning out and my husband is very anxious for me to keep working on it.

lovely work! I like the coulors of the crosses. And doilies are going to be beautiful! :)

Ruth Perry's cross looks wonderful in that HDT - thanks for the link to Ruth's pattern and also for the reference to crochet4u2dyefor. I'm amazed at her site! Very creative crocheted appliques! And her HDT is also amazing! I admire those who undertake that effort!

You've certainly been busy! I see you have many requests for the other sweet crosses! You realize that you will shortly have more orders for them!

I have to admit that the tablecloth would be too daunting a task for me to undertake, but I admire your courage! And the doily will certainly be colorful!

How are you doing on the bottom tat? A table cloth? That will be so much work! It is very beautiful, however; it will be worth the effort! : )
