Maria is a pattern from Lene Bjorn's book 'Tatted Bookmarks - cross-shaped' on page 9. The cross measures just 3.75 x 2.75 inches. I tatted this in a variegated green (Star size 70, Col: 140). The thread is from Paige through the Tatters Thread Exchange. I kept forgetting to join picots (for whatever reason, I may have been distracted) and had to unpick my tatting a few times.
