Here is Lene Bjorn's Christina cross tatted in Cebelia size 30. I might make the topper chains a bit longer so that I can use them to mark additional pages in my Bible. Yes, this one is for me. I had a bit of trouble with the Josephine chains, but I can make shorter ones now. I'm still having a bit of difficulty with longer chains--the chain twists when I take it off the needle. Maybe something better to shuttle tat.
Speaking of shuttle tatting, I completed 10 flipped stitches in a row yesterday!! I went from argg to ahah. I've never watched so few seconds of a video so many times!! Thanks to everyone who has YouTube tatting videos available. I looked at quite a few and took a bit here and a bit there. I attempted a ring last night, but realized that I had used black thread on my shuttle (silly me) and it didn't work out so well. I think that I had one stitch that didn't flip. I'll try again with variegated thread on the shuttle and see what happens. I'll show you the progress once I get something to show.
I also decided to participate in One World One Heart. I saw it last year, but couldn't participate since I didn't have a blog.
