Rhubarb Crisp Cross Finished



I have finally finished tatting this cross. Thanks to those of you who voted. After several test tats on ideas with DH advising against them, I worked out and tatted this Celtic border. It was a lot of work getting all the way around and decreasing ds in the bends to make it flat. I think I made the right choice and I am very proud of it.

Now, back to tatting hearts. I'm going to try and design some more. Whether or not they make it into the round robin, I don't know. I got my first envelope yesterday and I have to decide what kind and color of heart to tat for it.

As usual, thanks to Marilee for this lovely hand dyed thread called Rhubarb Crisp.

Well I'm not a cross person but yours is stunning and it would certainly tempt me to tat it. I think the celtic edging finishes it off a treat. Without it it was sorta ornery. Well done.

Laura, You should be very proud of yourself. You have done an amazing job tatting this cross and I love the choice of the Celtic border to finish it, perfect choice. You now have a beautiful piece to go with your doily. Your choice of colours to go with the rhubarb crisp match 100% and the HDT just makes it WOW.

Thank you all so much. I am glad that you like the cross and agree that I made the right choice. I usually try to respond to each comment, but Blogger has had it in for me lately. I appreciate all of you. I think I will take my "creamy rhubarb crisp" to "candy land" and stay there with it!
