Flat Shuttle Love

Lookie see what I found the other day in my craft closet — a gift from Georgia Seitz! Honestly, I can't believe she sent me this nine years ago. Where does the time go?

I really need to buy one of her fish-shaped shuttles to add to my collection. It would be perfect to use on April 1st for International Tatting Day. Especially since I pay homage to this special day by melding the French tradition of "April fish" with "April fools" while eating chocolate and tatting. For a more meaningful explanation of my unique tribute, read No Foolin' — International Tatting Day.

Georgia is one of the nicest people you could wish to meet. And her Tatting Talk self improvement guide is a wonderful book. Thank you, Georgia, for the lovely gift!

That is pretty cool! So, now that you found it have you tried it?

Fox, absolutely! The upside is finding treasures like these. The downside is realizing how much tatting thread I actually own. No way I'm justifying a HDT purchase anytime soon. *pouty.lip*

Tattrldy, I have loaded it up with some Handy Hands Flora size 50 and will be taking it for a test drive this week!
