Palmer's Posy Shuttle


My newest shuttle arrived today, Palmer's Posy from La Cossette. Isn't it pretty? I could hardly wait to try it out. This is a modified Aerlit shuttle, and I was eager to see if the modifications improved the shuttle. In my opinion, they did!

I do have several of the Aerlit shuttles. My only complaint about them is that the bobbins seemed stiff and slightly difficult to move. I'm sure it's possible that some shuttle and bobbin combinations work better than others. That said, I'm happy to report that this shuttle works beautifully!

The motif is "Flower Fragment" from A Pattern Book of Tatting by Mary Konior. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the motif is actually a pale pink, size 20 Lizbeth #621.

I think I could tat these little Flower Fragments all day long!

I love the flower motif! It's one I have often admired but have yet to make. The shuttle is very pretty too.
