I am still making crosses for each of the seniors in our Sunday night group.
This one is Garden Cross from Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle Edited by Barbara Foster.
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Purple Iris Fusion.
This second one is Helene from Tatted Bookmarks - cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Niagara Falls.
Both of these crosses were challenges to me. The first one due to the fact that the center ring is tatted, then the outside, then fill in the the rest, and the tiny rings of 4 ds on each corner
which wouldn't close properly for me. I had tatted this cross in red and white first, but missed a ring completely and it wouldn't lay correctly at all when finished so I started over and succeeded this time!! :)
This second cross has all spiral chains in it which was a problem for me. I tried to make them, but they kept twisting up badly and I just couldn't get it done right, so... I started over and used 6 first half of ds, and then 6 second half of ds since the stitches were 12 count. I think it looks similar. Also, this thread challenged me due to the fact that while closing 2 of the rings the thread broke on me.
