New shuttles to giveaway: 2,000 followers.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on the blog, but I have still been planning for the next giveaway. I saw these plastic colourful shuttles a few weeks ago on ebay, and thought I would like to decorate some and also give some away. They are perfect for a give away on the blog as they are small and light for international postage.

I was very excited when they arrived, and picked up a tatting project (Alenalea’s Daisy doily tat along) to try out these shuttles.

These shuttles are very similar to the clover in weighting and feel. The tips are sturdy and have that satisfying click while you work the thread. The pointed tip is fine enough to retro-tat (un pick) the size 20 thread I am using currently, and would be ok for size 40 too, without splitting the thread. I think they are pretty good and look forward to sharing these around.

So, keep sharing and liking – bring on 2,000 followers 😁

As always, happy tatting

  6. Every time my husband says I have too much fabric, thread, too many books, tatting needles, beads,patterns, …..I remind him of how many screwdrivers, wrenches, etc. he has (to which he replies he needs the right tool for each job), I reply that I need the right tools for each project! Let’s add tatting shuttles to the list of “too many!”
