stacked crosses bookmark
this is the first attempt at this bookmark.
While I was mending Father's alb today, a bookmark was running around in my head. This is the first attempt at what I am calling stacked crosses.
this is not yet blocked nor is it finalized. It is tatted in one pass from top to bottom using split rings.
I will have to let this design perculate for a bit as I am not completely satisfied at how it turned out.
the lopsided split rings may look better when it is blocked I hope.
I realize that the scan is a bit hard to see with yellow thread against a white background. I should have taken the time to dig out a darker colored paper to use as a background.
since this isn't a final usable design I am not submitting it for the 25 motif challenge.
