I absolutely love my shuttle collection! I've actually used about 2/3 of them for some project or another, but I know that shuttle collecting isn't for everyone. If I weren't able to collect shuttles, I'd be perfectly happy with my Clovers. They're light, and the pick is easy to use. The only time I don't like using them is when I'm tatting with size 10 thread... I run out of thread way too quickly!
I pulled my Learn to Tat by Janette Baker off the book shelf over the weekend, and I decided to use up some bits of thread on two of my Clover shuttles. I love the Easy Bookmark and Heart patterns. They're simple, yet very pretty. I guess that's the nature of tatting!
Oh, dear! I see some thread emerging from the green shuttle! I guess I'm going to have to empty another shuttle!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
