Needed a cross

I needed a cross tatted for another senior, 
and I found 2 already tatted sitting aside 
so I have 3 for seniors who haven't gotten 
a cross from me yet.
 The twin doilies have row 16 done.  
I took the picture to show how they curl up like a 
bowl after each row is tatted.  And then have to 
be made to lie flat( I just push and stretch a little 
and sometimes lay something on top overnight).
 Here they are next to my Cathedral Doily to 
compare row 16 to row 26.
Have a wonderful tat-filled day!!! :)

They block perfectly - I’d be alarmed to see cupping like that, but it’s not so much of a problem, obviously.

I love tatting crosses, although I haven't done any in a while. They do make a nice gift. Your twin doilies are coming along great! I'm not sure I could do two at a time.

Thank you both very much!!! :)
Jane, I was very concerned with the cupping at first, but this design has almost an elastic like property to it and it stretches. I had another tatter asking me what thread I was using because the design also makes the doily somewhat stiff. It's an odd thing, but it works. ;)
Diane, I wasn't sure about doing 2 at a time, but it has been working so I am not questioning it. ;)
