Monica cross and some thread (18/25)

This is the Monica cross from Tatted cross-shaped Bookmarks by Lene Bjorn. This is needle tatted in Lizbeth Boysenberry dk. It is already in the mail to a special friend who just sent me quite a bit of thread and a snowflake tatted by her grandmother.

This is a snowflake tatted by her grandmother. She sent it to see if I could tat something similar.

I also received all of these goodies as well.

The first is some pink and blue crochet cotton.
Then some thread in size 10. Christmas colors, light blue, red, green, dark green, yellow, and brown.

And lastly, quite a bit of DMC thread in size 80.

If you see anything that strikes your fancy, let me know and we can set up a trade.


  1. Wow. What a lovely lot of goodies! I didn't even know Baroque came in colors, I have only seen it in white and ecru at the local craft stores. But I do love the DMC 80 the best I would love to do a trade with you for some. Were you wanting to do a trade by the yard or by the ball? I especially love the plums and purples (center of photo) and the variegated pastels. Contact me at and let me know what kind of trade you are interested in. I don't have much size 80 I will warn you, but I do have quite a good selection of size 20 if you're interested in it.

  2. I love all the crosses in that book! I really like the color you used.

  3. Beautiful cross and I love that Boysenberry color!!! :)
    That snowflake is awesome too!
