I have been on a shopping kick as of late. Besides the two bulk orders of Boyle shuttles, I've been ordering a shuttle a week, it seems.
Just recently I ordered this pretty Slider Shuttle from Sandra McKay Pellerin. Fox tested it out and gave it high marks. I'm hoping it works out as good for me. I have a GR8 shuttle and I like it but it is kind of fiddly on my tension. If it does my hands good, I'll order the Olive wood one I was eyeballing as well.
Davina-Marie on Etsy. A few months back I received an exchange package from her. Inside, she had included a hook similar. I'm so glad she made more because now I have the link to her Etsy shop. So the mystery of the 'artist' that made these has been solved! The one I received in the exchange was a size 7, the one I purchased was a size 12. I wonder if she'll make one in a size 14..that would round out my hook tools.
Besides this doily, I haven't tatted anything else. My tatting has been sorrowfully neglected. I still have to set up my MomCave again. We picked up a air hockey table for our son, and it seems like I'm going to have to put it in my cave. I forgot that things look smaller on the display floor, so that while it looks doable there, when you get it home it's a completely different story. I could change the dining area around and set it up there, but that would just look tacky.
With the weather warming up, I'll be able to do some resin casting soon. That means that I'll be making shuttles again! I know I only put out a few last time. Resin casting takes up so much time, that I haven't really felt the urge to do it. With the heat rising, it tempts me.
I found this picture on Facebook and thought it was a wonderful way to display some tatted flowers. Now the only problem would be to find a cute tea cup that I wouldn't mind using. Sounds like an excuse to go "Treasure Hunting". I'll see if my Honey wouldn't mind going to a few second hand stores with me. If not, he can always spend the day at his mom's with the kids so I can go. Looks, like we have tomorrow's plans, since I magically have a Saturday off.
