Off the Shuttles: Easy Tatted Cross

I really like this cross pattern.  It's easy and tats up quickly.  I finished it last night.  I probably should have made the tail longer but I was tired of doing the balanced double stitch.  I made it for the deacon's sister-in-law as a thank you for making sure the doily went with the Pope when he returned to the Vatican last month.

Off the Shuttles: Ruth Perry Snowflake

I used Lizbeth, size 10 in white and Ice Blue.  It makes a nice size ornament.  I plan to make a few more using smaller thread and turn them into earrings.

I have a couple of projects in progress -- a lanyard, a cross bookmark, and a book edging.
