Flowery cross

One more repeat at the bottom would make the proportion better. But this seems like a good design to me, and the flowery edge is an effective way to use a variegated thread, I think. The thread I used is size 20, white on shuttle 2 and my own hand dyed "Lola" on shuttle 1. The finished size measures about 3x4 inches (almost 8x10 cm) The written pattern is still in the works...I have quite a few in the "works".
Bag #4 has been started on the loom. I used a little of the "Spicy Hot" hand dyed pearl cotton in the border of the bright rusty orange oval motif on the right. As with the previous bags, a polymer clay button and tatted loop is planned for a closure.

Your cross is very pretty! I like Lola with the white center!

I absolutely love this cross and will have to have the pattern for my Lola thread! The weaving is lovely as well.

The flowery edge of the cross really does a nice job of displaying your HDT. Very pretty indeed.

Thank you very much. I will either get the pattern into my "book" or share it on my website. But I think tattycat will have her book finished first :-)

A book? Me? Whatever gave you that idea? Maybe one day!

Thank you, Kathleen. Exuberant praise does give me incentive to keep going!
