Two new shuttles

I just can't help myself... when I see a new and interesting shuttle, I get the urge to buy it. I think I may have a problem!

These two lovelies arrived recently. Have you seen LadyShuttleMaker's copper shuttles? She also has some beautiful silver shuttles. I now am the proud owner of two of her copper shuttles, as well as one silver. I feel very special tatting with miniature works of art!

The wood shuttle is hand-carved in Chile. I ordered it through a friend at InTatters. The shuttle is incredibly light weight. I liked it so much, I ordered another one in a dark wood. If you're interested in finding out more about the wood shuttles, e-mail me and I'll get you in touch with my friend.

Along with my new copper shuttle, I ordered some size 50 HDT, Confetti Sprinkles. I think it makes a terrific Spinning Wheel glass mat! Believe it or not, I was able to wind the entire skein of HDT on the two shuttles, which are each about the size of a Clover.

Just think... if I ordered a shuttle with every skein or ball of thread, I'd have quite a selection at home. Oh, wait... I do!


  1. Well, there are worse things you could spend your money on. At least your habit keeps you out of trouble. I firmly believe that Sherry's shuttles will one day be on display in the Smithsonian.

  2. I love your spinning wheel.

    It is another pattern that is on my 'to do' list :)

  3. Very unique looking shuttles and your mat looks very pretty in this color!!

  4. Those colors are so joyful looking! I love them! :)

  5. I always enjoy seeing your spinning wheels. Lovely new shuttles.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
