Sweet little bag of goodies

At an estate sale these were jammed in a plastic bag, with many other sewing odds and ends.
The bag was taped shut so I couldn't see, but I just knew to get it.

The booklet is an old "Work Basket", and it was folded so that I had no idea what the paper was, or what it held. It held the crosses. Also the instructions.

Little doily pieces, buttons, thimbles, crochet balls, embroidery thread, etc,,,,Heavenly!
If you want the instructions, you can email me or maybe enlarge this.
My Grandmother gave me my first bible, and she made a pink and white cross book mark for it...I  have it packed away, I will find it and add it later.

Great find! I'm like that too when you find something that just speaks to you no matter what I'm reaching for my wallet. Have a great day!

Oh, my how this brings back some beautiful memories! I still have a delicate, crocheted cross in the prayer book that I had as a child. I've always wanted a pattern, and would love if you could email a copy to me at Thank you SOOOOO much! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Marcie, I love these little crosses you found....they're so sweet! I'd love to have the patterns. Do you crochet? If not, I'd love to make one for you if you share the pattern.

These are wonderful. I have a cross my great-aunt (like a grandmother to me) made me when I was young. It is white with pink edges and I still have it in my white bible I got when I was baptized. Thank you for the memories!
