Although Eva liked the pink cross I posted earlier this week, she really wanted one like her mommy's. What's a grandma to do? Make another cross, of course!
I left the ends of the threads hanging so that you could see just how close I came to running completely out of thread! I have never finger tatted before, but it was a necessity if I didn't want to completely remake the tassel. I find finger tatting to be very confusing! I could have joined a new thread I suppose, but that seemed a little ridiculous for the final chains. I could have given myself a little more leeway... the last chain has 8 picots instead of the 7 called for in the pattern. Oops!
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!
