Tatted garland from Brigitte H.'s pattern

Thank you so much for designing this pattern and giving it to the calendar Brigitte! I just love it.

The pattern is on the calendar for August 16th by Brigitte Henneberger. I am tatting with variegated Flora thread and DMC for the dark green. (size 20 for both.) This pattern is very easy to pick up and then you don't need the pattern. It is one of those "mindless" patterns, which I love! I haven't decided what I am going to do with it yet. I just put it against the collar of a pink blouse to take the picture. My daughter said it would make a beautiful insertion. I didn't know she knew what that was! I've never done an insertion before, but it would be lovely on a tea towel, or a set of napkins if you had time.

Thanks again Brigitte for the pattern and to Ruth for keeping up with the calendar!

Laura, the garland is beautiful! I saw it on the calendar, but I've been so caught up in getting ready for school, that I didn't really look carefully. I think this one's a must do!

Hi Diane. I really think you should do this one. I've been thinking about it and it would be so nice over the shoulders and around the back of a nice, white jacket. I think a white denim jacket would look very smart draped in this garland.

I love the pink and green, it is really pretty. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Thanks Snowy. I stopped working on it right now because I don't want to waste thread if I'm not going to use it. I'm almost finished with Jane's lobster for Isaac.
