Picture Perfect - Collective
This week in Picture Perfect the theme is Collective. What a better way to show my collection of collectible Shuttles. lol These are very special to me. A couple of years ago something very terrible happened and I lost them all! they appeared on E-Bay. Yes, the thief was selling them! But some of my shuttles have my name and NATA # and a few tatters-friends recognized them and bought them back for me. You can't imagine how much I cried when Tonya (from GA) gave them back to me! They are safe now in my mother's home and when I return to PR I'll have them waiting to use them. Some of them are old (1920 the oldest), some of different materials (wood, bone, brass, silver). Others big, others small... But all of them have the same use, create lovely tatting lace.
Even if this is not exactly tatting, I'm cross posting to Blogger because I use my shutles to tat with.
