I wanted to use two of my favorite shuttles for my next project, which meant I had to use up some thread left on shuttles! There was very little thread left on the one shuttle, so I just unwound it and put it in the circular file. However, the other shuttle had quite a bit of hand-dyed thread left on it, so...
I tatted some Leaf Braid (from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior). I'm not sure of the color. I think it may be Summer Trail, but it's been too long since I used it, and I'm too lazy to look back and see what I made with it!
My next task was to wind my shuttles with size 20 Lizbeth #168, Latte Foam. The shuttles are from Grizzly Mountain Arts. The top shuttle is the GMA signature logo. The bottom shuttle is one that I commissioned Dave to make for me when my dad passed away. Dad was almost as big a fan of Dave's work as I am!
Never let it be said that I've forgotten my beloved Spinning Wheel! This one is in size 10 Teeny Bopper from Yarnplayer. The shuttles are ones that I blinged recently. They match origami pouches that I made for myself. I certainly am self-indulgent!
