Monica Cross completed...

Here is the Monica Cross, from Lene Bjorn's Tatted Bookmark's - Cross Shaped, completed...and just under the wire to have a completion to post today (actually, this posted 3 minutes after midnight ~ so not quite, but I finished it on the 10th)!


Here is what it looked like this morning when I picked it up to work on...


Not much progress this evening when I picked it up again...


But, I managed it...
and even a reasonably decent photo.  
I will have to remember that the laundry room light is good for this!


The threads are Lizbeth size 20, golden yellow med. and navy blue. (24/25 motif challenge)  Yes, I used the shoelace trick all over the place to get the chains/rings all one color...but I think it was completely worth it, I love how the yellow chains wend their way through the pattern!  These are my daughter's school colors and this is to be a gift for one of her teachers (It's a catholic school, so this is more than acceptable) 

Now, I need to go to bed I think!

  1. Very pretty! I never would have thought of integrating the colors that way. I really like the effect!

    1. Thank you! I was wondering at one point what I had gotten myself into...there were A LOT of shoelace tricks involved to get that effect, but I think it was worth it in the end. I really wanted the two colors and I am delighted with how it came out :-)

  3. I have made this cross in one color and variegated thread. Never thought of mixing the colors the way you did. I LOVE it.....going to try it when I tat some crosses for our church bazaar this year.

  6. That is a very pretty cross. I like the way you worked the pattern with those colors.
    Lena's patterns are very nice. I have that book too.

    1. Thank you! I have only done two of the patterns from that book...I tend to get stuck on Konior's cross patterns, but I have loved both of Lena's that I have done and am eager to work a few more!
