I call these little ones "my greats". They are my great grandchildren. The big boy is Brody--age 22 months. The baby, Kenley, is 6 days old. He obviously likes his new cousin.

I have had the pattern for this cross for many years. have no idea whose design it is, but would be happy to attribute it to the designer if I knew. I used size 80 thread DMC color #55 for the edging, and size 70 Coats & Clark color #161 for the inside. Click on the picture for the enlarged picture to show the stitches.

And here you see my attempts to do the cluny leaf. The leaf itself was fairly easy and didn't turn out too bad. But it was impossible for me to join it to the rest of the tatting because my fingers could not hold the threads adequately. I think this is my last attempt because it took over half an hour to do one leaf and my fingers really hurt. So much for that!!!! Comments welcome. lol
