Plans for the future

It dawned on me, while working on some of the individual motifs of the Spider Fantasia, that when finished it would make a wonderful backdrop..for a clock! It is a twelve point motif. I'm fairly certain that I can find a clock set up here somewhere, or buy another one. I have been motivated to work faster on this.

I also have a new acquisition for my shuttle collection.  These acrylic shuttles are from I love the way they feel.

Recovery is still slow going..but I am able to work longer shifts so I suppose that's progress. I'm still feeling drained, but even the smallest routine practices make me feel better.


  1. So beautiful shuttle! Looking forward to see the clock. :-)

  2. I love the idea of a tatted clock! I have seen a few pictures, but I'm not aware of a pattern that is recommended for a clock. Have you tried the shuttles yet? I love them!

  3. Sorry to hear you haven't been well. Hope you feel better soon.

    One of the nicest tatted clocks can be found at the following url, and it's a pattern from Tat Man. It goes back to 2012!

    It has the twelve distinctive 'arms' as points, and I like that you could easily see what time it is.

    That is a beautiful shuttle! I'm wondering if she actually makes the basic shuttle or does she have a supplier. It looks like a nice size and would hold a lot of thread. I love the butterflies!
