An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Beautiful colourway ! Good to give your unique shuttle some photo space :-)
I do like the silver one very nice😄
I love my silver shuttles. Where did you find one with a point? Mine are 3" but no point. The engraved name is a nice touch!
I had it made by a silversmith here in South Africa. I gave him a shuttle to copy. It's a bit heavy but otherwise good.
Or rather, my husband Jack had it made for me!
He did a great job on it. I have 2 sterling shuttles I found at Snowgoose, but they were the last and I cannot find them anymore. Being a guy, I like the weight.
Well, find a silversmith who is willing to give it a go. We asked him to make a second one for Diane, lace loving librarian, who collects shuttles.
I am interested to see what this tatting will become. How interesting your silver shuttle backstory is. Happy Tatting...
