This pattern came from same old booklet, Tatting Book no. 183. It was supposed to be a flower spray but I made an abbreviated version of the pattern and kind of winged it through the stem part. The thread is awful thread to work with. It's Clea 9258. I love the colors but it's a 2 ply thread and when I was tightening the stitches on another piece I was making, the thread broke on me (first pic. I don't seem to be able to remember to post the pics in the opposite order so that they're in the right order!).
