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!
