easy to read. There are no instructions, no color keys, just
pretty patterns for those of you who love to bead and want patterns
at a very affordable price. You can find beading

century, by the Count of Toulouse from the Occitan Cross. Toulouse
is now the capital of Midi-Pyrénées and this cross
appears on its flag. Before the French Revolution, Toulouse was
the capital of the Languedoc province. Toulouse is now the fourth
largest city in France.
The Toulouse Cross is a voided cross (the centre section
removed) of four spear-tips or arrow-heads and usually coloured
yellow. There are three blobs at the end of each arm. The blobs
extend beyond the edge of the cross, giving the name Entrailed
Cross. The original purpose of these is unknown. They may have
represented Jesus' twelve disciples or perhaps rays of light
emanating from the cross. Alternatively, they may simply have
been rivets used to affix the handle on the reverse side of a
shield, plus a few decorative rivets for balance.
