Now for a fun post...can everybody say YEAHHHH!!!
I spent alot of today tatting away. It was my day off from babysitting. So here is a picture of what I am working...can anybody guess what it is???LOL....
In the picture along with my tatting is my horn shuttles from Peter. As you can see at the moment they are tatting workshorses...just doing what they are told...over and under, under and over...that is what they are doing...tatting their little hearts right out.
As you can see in the pictures the shuttles are so very smooth to the look at touch that they feel like glass. The etching is also nice and smooth. And look at the point on Blonde and Darko. They click so nicely too when the thread is passed between their points. And take a look at the artwork....what better artwork can you have than dragons and Phenoixes. Do you see the different colors of the horn...I bet you didn't know there was so many different colors did you? But Peter has his secrets for the horn coloring. If you are use to the Clover and Susan Bates will find these shuttle right at home in your hand and the beauty of the shuttle is...they may work like workhorses like Susan Bates and Clover shuttles that I know some of you just love but they are beautiful to the eyes too. Be looking for more of Peter's shuttles being shown here for all your Eye Candy Pleasure.
Let know if anybody can guess what I am now making...and NO it isn't another tablecloth...LOL

Aren't theses shuttles beautiful??!!

Anyhow...back to my tatting. Thanks for stopping by.

Are you working on a necklace? It is beautiful. Your shuttles are also beautiful. Can they be purchased somewhere? Keep up the beautiful tatting, I hope to some day accomplish reading a pattern.
