Tatting "Heritage Cross" in Patriotic thread

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This cross is from Tatted Bookmarks published by Handy Hands, pattern "Heritage Cross" by Dee Powell. Page 24.
It is a super simple pattern and I altered it a bit to make it larger.
This is tatted in my hand dyed "patriotic" tatting thread size 80.
I put a few skeins up in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.

The cross and the thread are very pretty. I like the way the thread tats up and the progression of colors. You did very well!

Adding my echo, you did very well! I am very impressed with how deep you got the red and the blue on first try dyeing!
The cross is gorgeous! Items like this would make such meaningful gifts for anyone with a soldier or veteran in the family.

Great idea Marilee, and I know several potential recipients.
