Motif # 2 Jane's Bookmark Cross

Another small project done.  This is Jane's Bookmark Cross adapted by Grace Tan.  You can find the pattern here. 

I did this in Lizbeth size 20 in Elderberry Jam.  It's the first time I've used this thread and I love the subtle changes in color.  If you look closely you can see that the center of the cross is not correct.  Since it's not perfect, I may just have to keep this one for myself.  Not sure what I did wrong.  The pattern is pretty straightforward, but joining the two "L's" in the center was a little tricky.


  1. Love the colour, lovely cross even with slight mistake,

  2. Your cross is very beautiful!!! That is the second cross I have seen tatted in that gorgeous color!!! :)

  3. Ooh, your cross looks rich in Elderberry Jam. Just a guess, but you might not have cinched up your join tightly enough in the center. I minor, minor adjustment will give you the end-result you are looking for. Don't despair!

    Welcome to the 25 Motif Challenge. Looking forward to seeing your journey progress. You are off to a great start!

    1. Thanks for the tip. I will tat it again and tighen up that join.
