Day 2

After day 2 the tatting is still dominated by the shuttles, but that will soon change. Interesting shape, don't ask me what it is.

  3. 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!

    1. 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.

    2. Or rather, my husband Jack had it made for me!

  4. 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.

    1. 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.

  5. I am interested to see what this tatting will become. How interesting your silver shuttle backstory is. Happy Tatting...
