2017 25 Motif Challenge #1 Heidi Cross

This is the Heidi Cross from Tatted Bookmarks-
cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Scottish Thistle.
This was a challenge because it has a "new to me" 
technique-Josephine knots.  I think I did ok, but 
I need to work on getting the first one closer to the 
previous ring and not to leave bare thread there, and 
to work on closing them better-slower is better!!!
I flunked in my 2016   25 Motif Challenge.  I 
am starting a 2017   25 Motif Challenge.
Hope your new year is off to a wonderful 
tatting start!!!  :)

It's very pretty and a good learning exercise.

Excellent ! Both half-rings and Josephine rings need a bit of practice while closing, but you've done it very nicely :-) I like how the variegation complements the pattern.

No, no, no! You did not flunk the challenge... you just haven't completed it to your satisfaction. Look at all you've accomplished this year! I love the cross in Scottish Thistle!
