I will get back to Jane's T.I.A.S. soon. After all, I don't want to lose my ability to make split rings! However, I needed to take some time to tat some crosses.
Almost two weeks ago, one of my third grade students died from a severe asthma attack. Two days later, my ex-husband passed away after a 10 month battle with pancreatic cancer. Somehow, tatting crosses seemed to be an appropriate task.
Both crosses are from Lene Bjorn's Tatted Bookmarks - cross-shaped. The green one is Christina in Flora #228. The blue one is Maria in Lizbeth #651.
Although I think both crosses are very pretty, I think I'll try both patterns in a smaller thread. Size 20 just seems too big!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
