This little one is done with size 8 Pearl cotton and of course with my needle. I am finding that these crosses are working up for me in about an hour and a half. That includes interuptions with the girls and everything else that pops up.
Think I am ready for bed now.
Here are the Celtic Crosses from Rozella Linden's book, that I finished the other day, and just found time to upload them. They are done with the same varagated DMC thread and with the needle. Really enjoying these needles I got. Still playing with my shuttle too, but not sure what the difference is between the Aero and the Bates, which is all I have access to?!

I have also done a couple more of the Celtic crosses from Rozella Linden's book Celtic Tatting Knots & Patterns, in this varagated blue.
I will upload those a little later.

Just not sure if or how to stiffen it. Never done 3-d before.
This is also done with needle tatting and crochet cotton #10.

Here is my twist on a couple of patterns.
Instead of just tatting them, I added a wire on the outside round so that I could shape it to look like it is flying. This is Ruth's Celtic Butterfly out of her book. I used crochet cotton with the metalic twist and a varigated for the knots of the wings.
This is my version of Dianna Stevens moose. I used her basic outline, but did it also with wire so I didn't have to stiffen it after. I made this one for my oldest daughter's teacher who is in love with wildlife. Next time, might just use thread and shuttles or needles. Wire can be a pain. Forgot the ears on this poor soul. Maybe he doesn't want them where he's going?

Had lots of fun joining the body to the second wing. Just kept joining to the wrong picots.
Picture didn't come through very well though.
Just can't seem to quit making these darling little bookmarks.
I think this makes up to #12 for the 25 motif challenge.

Trying to upload pictures, but beta.blogger will not let me upload them without errors.
I did get the celtic cross done. It worked up really fast and really fun. Used odd colors for me, but I thought it turned out ok. Hope blogger gets things fixed so I can post my pictures.
