I was learning tatting, and tried some edgings
Then came an idea of doing the edging on a square cloth.
why not do a motif on that cloth?
Why not do a cross stitch pattern on that cloth/
With these in mind, I designed and worked a cross stitch pattern on Cream Aida cloth.
After completing the embroidery, the edging was tatted as per plan.
The doily-

cross stitch doily with tatted edging

I actually tried two more, but only this edging came out properly[?]
