Doodles part 1

Some time ago I was in touch with Erin Hinton of Hinton's shuttles.  They're now making shuttles out of epoxy resin in which they embed tatting!!  

Isn't that just TOO clever?  Well I offered to do some doodles for these and here are some I'm working on.
Below you can see a squirrel, an acorn, a turtle, a butterfly, some elephants and giraffes, a tree, a mouse, a fish and a hummingbird.  I make them in pairs but they're such little stinkers to get on the scanner together or in pairs you'll just have to see them like this - in a muddle!!!  I'll get the rest done tomorrow and show you them then.

I'm waiting for a photo from Erin of a finished shuttle to show you.  When her husband has time to take one I'll post it too.

Great set of Doodles.

That's so cool to have your doodles encased in a shuttle. Will she be selling your actual doodles in an epoxy shuttle? I really like the giraffe. Is the giraffe on one side and the tree on the other side? I can't wait to see the shuttles.

Yes, that's the intention, Carol. If you want her email address it's erinh12@wildblue.net
The giraffe is one side and the tree on the other - well, in theory!!!

Those should be some of the most fun shuttles to use! :)
Possibly even a great way to get some younger ones interested in tatting.

My favourite is the humming bird, but can't find the pattern on your site, or have I missed it?
