another piece completed

My fluttering Heart completed using DMC Cebelia size 20 thread. This pattern was taken from Tatting Hearts by Teri Dusenbury. I love her book on the hearts and will attempt to tat more hearts when I find the time.

Large cross

I know, I know I have been MIA for quite a while. So many activities have kept me very busy. Other interests have also kept me away from tatting. 2 weeks ago, I decided to tat a cross using Lizbeth thread which I purchase some time ago. Pattern is taken from "Tatting with Visual Patterns" by Mary Konior. Using Lizbeth size 20 colour Jewel. Eventually completed it and now it is underneath a pile of books being pressed down. Difference colours at the joining could be seen and this makes the cross a little untidy. I am still trying to figure out how to make my work neat when working with colourful threads.
