Goodness Grapecious!!

Two posts in one day and my very first edging design! When I get fixated on an idea I can't let it go until I have a satisfactory conclusion. This idea was rolling around in my head for nearly four days. I am very pleased with this edging. I generally don't go in for edgings and doily's and such.
But this is a design I can't wait to use in my own kitchen (which happens to be, what I like to call, my "Italian Bistro").
I am going to have a bugger of a time writing this pattern as I don't know the term (or even if there is one) for the method I used, and I certainly don't know how to transcribe it. Perhaps one of you tatting guru's out there can assist me.
Now that this is done I can get back to doing some pottery.

Sherry, your edging is beautiful! Will this one be in your book? My kitchen also has an Italian flair, due mostly to my daughters!

Thank you Diane! If I can figure out a way to write the pattern which can be easily understood I will make it available in some form.

I love the grapes! I bet your bistro is beautiful. My kitchen isn't Italian in design, but I love purple and grapes. I can't wait for the pattern. You did a great job.
