A year or two ago, I purchased a plastic case loaded with Sulky Blendables thread at Overstock.com. Why Sulky Blendables? I had received a sample from Georgia Seitz, and I loved it! What I didn't realize when I ordered the thread, was that this is 30 wt. thread, not the 12 wt. that Georgia sent. Not knowing the difference, I tried it out. It was much later that I realized that I was using a much finer thread!
I do enjoy tatting with it. I can untat chains, but I have been unsuccessful with opening rings. Stumpy
is the perfect motif for me to use with this thread. It's small, and when I make a mistake, I don't mind cutting the thread and starting over.
The size of these finished motifs is 1 1/4" x 3/4". As you can see, they're much smaller than a Clover shuttle! My friend Jenny decorated the shuttle for me. Isn't it adorable?
You may have guessed... I'm tatting up a set of Stumpy motifs in the Sulky to send off to Chris Hinton at The Shuttle Shop
. These will make adorable shuttles!
I've been asked about how the Tatted Shuttles are for tatting. I love them! They hold a tremendous amount of thread. They're wider than any other shuttle I own. I really like the feel, but I don't think you can really go by me. I love every shuttle I own!
