We Celebrate our bountiful Harvest

We give thanks to our Lord like the Pilgrims did in 1621, now we call the fourth Thursday in November, Thanksgiving  Day.

The grapes I did a number of years ago, using two shuttles in purple and carrying the purple strings 4 cm or so, to the next clump of grapes. When done I used two shuttles in green and covered up the purple thread by adding green leaves randomly.


  1. Love your grapevine, that was an interesting way of working it, and it's a good symbol for Thanksgiving.

  2. Nice job on the grapes and leaves. It makes for a great picture. May you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Happy thanksgiving,
    Lovely grape pattern and very interesting way you tatter it, makes a really lovely picture with the grapes.

  4. Thank you, I am thankful for so many things, and as modern as it sounds, the internet friends that I can share with and learn from you all It's great to be apart of your lives, and we are so far away :)

  5. Beautifull and very interesting!! Is this technique what they call 'branching encapsulation? Anyway, even without a name, I find it logic to take a thread 'with you' as you tat. Same technique as with hiding yout thread in the beginning.I have a tatting shuttle with 2 wheels, but I never figured out how to operate that. Does that have the same result? I never celebrated thanksgiving! I congratulate you nevertheless. Is that the day when you roast a Turkey? Love to your family!!

  6. I think it is like encapsulation I never got that book and did this before I knew that existed, I saw some work done but not sure.I don't know how you would work those two wheels I wondered my self what that is for, and how you could possibly use it, I can't make since of that,unless it's like how some people knit with 2 strings of yarn like it's one. Oh and yes lot's of turkey or ham and family, my husband had to work this year so it was just 3 of us and we had a nice time it was very cold outside so we just stayed inside.
