Josephine Cross

The Josephine Cross was a small project I made with size 80 DMC.  This is a Ben Fikkert pattern which I have always admired.   Do you recall my Collar Bookmark , well I gave that bookmark to my sister, blue is her favorite color and she told me she put it in her bible.  I really felt she needed something better for the bible so when I found this thread in a local yarn shop I just had to make her something special.  It is just off the shuttles so a little ruffled which will be flat by Sunday as she has already slipped it into her bible.
I find that crosses give you a lot of practice on edgings and how to turn corners also each one challenges me as a tatter.  They are very useful as gifts too.  Do you have a favorite cross?
