The new additions....

Finally got around to taking some photos of the new shuttles added to the collection over the last month or so....

First up.....the replacement Curly Maple from David Reed Smith was accompanied by a couple of others (yes Fox....your fault and I love you for it!!) One in Red Gum and one in Zebrawood.

Next two wooden shuttles bought from smalcoin via eBay (they also have an Etsy shop) These have nice clover inlays in them. A fair bit larger than the shuttles I am used to but nice to have in the collection..

And finally - an old plastic bobbin-type shuttle that I know absolutely nothing about. So anyone who can give me some info? That would be great!

They all arrived on the same day so it was a bit of a party opening them up!

Now......on with the tatting. Nearly finished the doily.
