Awesome Cross and Doily Update

I recently finished this cross designed by Robin Perfetti and I can't tell you how much I love this pattern.

I love the density of this pattern.  Even though it's tatted in size 80 thread, it is of substantial size, about 5 1/2 by 3 3/4 inches.  The pattern is easy to follow, but you have to pay attention.  Each ring of the "scallop" is a slightly different stitch count.  It lays very nice and flat without blocking or even ironing.  The two colors make it look like a cross within a cross, but I would also like to try it in a solid color. I used Lizbeth Lime Green Medium and Azalea Medium in size 80.  You can find the pattern for free here on Robin's blog.  It's called the "Priscella Cross."

And here is my Renulek 2015 Spring doily after round 7.

It's getting big, about 8 1/2 inches across in size 50 thread.  Can't wait to tackle the next round.

Happy Easter

Hope everyone has a happy Easter!

And it wouldn't be Spring in Texas without bluebonnets.
