It is also Thanksgiving week here in the United States.
After the mealtime prayer at our home, we take turns around the dinner table to say aloud what we thank God for, especially the blessings of the past year.
In previous IAST Thanksgiving week's, we have counted our blessings and incorporated them into our tiles for this two different ways: we have written them to be viewed along with the tangles and we've lightly penciled them in the string spaces to be tangled over.
This year we will use either option and begin with this string that I drew with a fancy cursive 'G' for Gratitude ~

An angular tangle, it can fill most any space. I have referred to this tangle often when writing about aura.

How could I pass up a tangle by this name when anticipating a Thanksgiving feast?!
This tangle is open for many variations.

This is simple and round and familiar to us. Here are my Tips for Tangling Primtemps ~
Use as few or as many of the tangles as you wish. The option is yours - to either have your words hidden in pencil along with the string, or to write them in Micron and view them with your tangles.
Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!
