Just in time for Valentine's...
Here is a sweet new pattern to use for your Valentine's - and all year 'round -

When I completed the step out in my notebook (pictured above) I wrote the words "Love Grows".
That made me think of my husband - and since his initials are LGB, I named the pattern LG - for him and for how our love has grown. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary this spring!
Sometimes the simplest ideas make the prettiest patterns. Here I began with just one small heart and added aura lines around it until I was satisfied with its size. Then I continued in the same fashion with another heart. Each additional heart added has a slightly different angle to it and the aura lines form a pleasant elegance.
Sue Agnew noted in her explanation in yesterday's post that most of the heart shaped patterns designed to date are very good border tangles, but few can be used as fillers. LG works wonderfully as a filler.
Here is a monotangle I completed -

See how shading transforms the look of the pattern? It is really fun to draw and turning your tile as you go helps vary the orientation of the hearts.
Here is a photo of a card I made for our daughter and her husband using LG -

Spread some love today, use LG on a tile, a card...something special for someone you love. Have fun!
