While cleaning my sewing room today, I found this gourd tatting shuttle that I thought I had lost. It was safely tucked away in a box of thread.
I love the artwork, something I have no talent for!
I also found my Zoom Loom! The Zoom Loom makes 4" squares, and it has a couple of features that I really like. First the wide plastic base makes it easy to hold. Second, there is a slit in the plastic to hold the yarn when beginning the warping process. I like having the slit, because I don't have to take out a slip knot when I finish weaving. It makes it much easier to hide the ends.
Last year I purchased this box on Amazon. It's meant to hold art chalk. I removed the dividers and the spongy liner, and then I lined the drawers with blue felt.
The drawers are very shallow, so the shuttles tend to catch a little if I don't pull the drawers out slowly, keeping them level.
I could store many more shuttles in these drawers if I removed the shuttles from the packaging.
However, I wanted to keep them in the packages in case the shuttles become collectible! ;-)
In case you didn't count the Emsy Jane shuttles, there were 21. Yes, there are more shuttles to come!
