Vintage Grapevine

Ever since I found tatting on the net I fell in love with this pattern.
This was the first picture I downloaded.
Bunch of Grapes from First edition of Tatting book by Reigo in 1850.
Found the redone pattern by Martha Ess on Georgia seitz site
(where else???)
I've done it with Anchor size 8 pearl cotton.
The thread is not wound so tight and is a little delicate to handle;
it's the first time I've used it for tatting,
but it looks shiny and nice!
I've used simple shuttle joins where the pattern asks for 'pnt'
and is done with continuous thread,
also used the knotted tatting tech. for the leaf joins
Motif No:13 for 25Motif challenge.

sigh....I've had this pattern on my "to do" list for a long time. It's such a lovely bookmark.
