Do you have favorite tatting books? I know I do. My all-time favorite is Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior, but following close behind is Tatting by Myra Piper.
Today I managed to finish motif #2 in size 20 Lizbeth, #171 Green Coral Sea.
The shuttle is from TattingShuttles in St. Petersburg, Russia. The shuttle is beautiful and light weight. I've been on a quest for Russian tatting shuttles since I purchased my Russian tatting book.
As a matter of fact, I'm searching for plastic jewel tone shuttles from Russia. I know I saw a picture of them within the past few weeks, but I didn't save the link. Does anyone out there know the shuttles I'm talking about? If so, do you know where I can purchase them? Somehow, I feel my shuttle collection is incomplete without them! ;-)
