Last week was a "shuttle clean up" day. I go and find all the stray shuttles (sometimes their remains after the dog has played with them) and try and get them in some semblance of organization. I was extremely happy when I found this one. I have been mentally debating with myself whether or not I actually bought it from Rita. I'm working on placing an order in a few days for some new shuttles, in honor my 10 year wedding anniversary! Wow, has it really been 10 years....doesn't even feel like it. Actually now that I think on it, I don't really notice the passing of time, unless it's to prove a point to my Honey. LOL. Now that I know I have this one, I can browse around for a different one.
I'm going to wait and see if I can "fix" the other one first so I can work them both at the same time. Besides being broken along the center there is also one point that is dangling along. I do think it is salvageable though. Since I was already working with my hands, I glued up some plastic shuttles using a pair of the large bobbins I found in a box.
