Medallion Cross Bookmark © Wanda Salmans
I seem to have a lot of these crosses now, all just a little different from each other. I keep trying different stitch counts, looking for just the right pattern.
This cross is in Lizbeth Twirlz #404 Mermaid Lagoon. I'm not all that excited about how it looks in this thread. I also had an awful time taking a good picture of it. This is the best of the lot. Can you tell that is a piece of white printer paper behind it?
I think I finally have the pattern done to my satisfaction. I still need to tat one with this stitch count to go on the pattern page. I started one, then I lost it under my seat in the car. Up until then I thought I'd have it done today, but that was the end of working on it while we were driving. I lost a bit of tatting time so it won't be finished as soon as I'd hoped.
Due to a couple of rainy days my kitchen didn't get finished until Tuesday, but the construction is done! *happy dance* What this means is I now have to put things away. I have lots of cabinet and drawer space and I have no idea where I want a lot of things. We just started putting items in cabinets where we (I) think is a good idea, at least at the moment. If they don't work there I guess we'll rearrange. Pictures will be coming as soon as I get a chance to download them to the computer.
Through all of this mess and muddle I've been tatting small things like this cross. Now I need to move on to other things. Not sure if I can call them bigger and better, but different anyway.
