Another Cross. (Motif #14/25)

Made for a friend.  Same pattern as before but, this time, in LizBeth Lemon Lt and LizBeth Leafy Greens, both Size 20. 

I've got dishes to do, but I wanted to post this before I started that evil chore... LOL. 

Oh!  I also set up a board so I can get some blocking done tonight.  Anyone have any tips before I mess up everything I've created thus far? LOL.

More bookmarks! :-) (Motifs 12&13 / 25).

Yup... I fell off the face of the earth again... I really should stop doing that, but I just seem to get distracted and then I end up busy, busy, busy.  I kind of have a job now, but it's unpredictable so that's taking up some time too.  I'm thinking that I MUST master the shuttle so that I can actually take tatting along with me when I go anywhere...

Anywho, I went to scan the cross that I tatted today and I found this on my scanner! LOL.  It was a nice surprise.... Apparently, I scanned it on March 8th and never posted it --and forgot all about it.  Oops.  Well, at least I can now say that March wasn't a complete waste! ;-)

It's "Beginner's Choice" (page 23) from Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster done it LizBeth Country Side (117) and Blue Med (651).  Yup... that's right, I ordered the right thread to match Country Side... and they DO match! LOL.  

 Now, today's cross that led to my discovery, LOL... 
Pattern: "Heritage Cross" by Dee Powell
Book: Tatted Bookmarks Needle and Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster
Thread: LizBeth, Gold (611), Size 20.
It needs to be blocked, definitely... and I'm still debating about the tassel that's supposed to go at the top... But, it's done... and I didn't mess it up! LOL. 

Well, I hope all is well with everyone.  I plan to have more to show soon.  :-)  I've missed tatting SO much!!!!

With Love,
