Have you seen?


Clover has a new 3" shuttle! When I saw the announcement from Handy Hands, I ordered mine right away. It was a bit pricey, but how could I resist? The package holds two shuttles, a blue and a green. As you can see from the picture, it isn't much larger than the original size, however it does hold twice as much thread. I really like the feel of this shuttle, and I think it could be my new favorite. ;-)

The motif is #2 from Minitats by Patti Duff. the one on the right is a mistake motif. I didn't make my center picot large enough to join a sixth ring, so I settled for 5. It works, but I do prefer the motif with six rings.

I often take her big picot in the center and just make a +2- for each ring (-2- for the first and +2+ for the last). It seems to make things less crowded AND the bare thread doesn't show.

Oooooo I want some of those too! I was wondering what the size difference was! I love the Clover shuttles so I think I will "need" to order some too! LOL

Love that pretty new shuttle. (Blue, of course - is there any other color, Diane?) Guess I'll have to order a few for myself since they hold twice the amount of thread. (I hate knots, so I work the threads in as I go. But with these new shuttle there will be less threads to work in.

Lovely little Minitat - now don't get them all done before you even leave for your visit to see that new granddaughter. Save a few for the trip.

That book looks like a lot of fun. Going on my wishlist for sure. I love seeing your mini tats!

The big clover shuttle is too cool.

I was drooling over those shuttles when I saw their release as well. I will certainly have to add some to the cart as soon as I am able to do so. :o)

How are the new queen-size Clovers as compared to the Starlits?

I'm considering ordering them, but that price is a stunner!

Love both your motifs - especially 'cause they're BLUE!!!
