I know I've mentioned before that I love to shop online. Part of the reason is that it takes me a half hour at least to get to any shopping, and that doesn't include places I love like little yarn shops!
Every once in a while I do a search on eBay, Etsy, or Google for tatting shuttles and find something new that I just have to have. That was the case with this little beauty! I found it at http://stores.ebay.com/Alexandra-Beatty-Designs. It's made out of a gourd! It's 3.5" x 1" x1", painted, and sealed. The last time I looked at this shop, there was a shuttle with a giraffe pattern on it... very cool! She also had a plain shuttle listed, just perfect for decorating yourself... if only I had a flair for design!
I just had to have some of the thread when I saw these beautiful jewel tones! (Sorry for the glare on the pictures... I haven't figured out how to eliminate that.) Have any of you ever worked with it before? Now, if I only had a little more time!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
