You can barely make out the frosted glass delica beads running up the centre of this cross. Tatted with 3 strands of rayon thread.
The parents of the young lady about to celebrate her confirmation chose this vibrant purple cross, tatted in 2 strands of a rayon thread. I only wish I had dome something different with the tail, as I plaited this and I can't say I love it.
I love the colours in this blue cross, and the picots delight me. I am such a fan of the more traditional tatting. I truly shy away from split rings and self closing mock rings. Not because I don't love innovation, nor that I can't do them, I guess I am a traditionalist when it comes to tatting. I prefer the picots over beads, it looks like it should (IMHO). Tatted with 2 strands of cotton thread.
