My Not-So-Purple Grapes
I’m still working through Sherry’s new book, Branching Encapsulation.The next pattern to try
was the grapes. Again I just used the thread that was already on my shuttles so they aren’t grape-colored grapes, but they look like grapes 🙂

The pink and green are unknown colors in Lizbeth size 20 and Cebelia ecru in size 30. They make for slightly odd-looking grapes, but the idea was to learn how to do them. I only made this much of the edging but I’m pretty comfortable with the technique, even if there is room for improvement.
I’m not sure I’ll be getting the tatting done I planned on for the wedding gift. It’s fast approaching and I still haven’t even started it yet! They may get it as a belated gift. They’ll have lots to open right away, maybe they’d appreciate another one a little late? You think?
