Have you EVER seen?

Have you ever seen ANYTHING as pretty as this?

A shuttle holder kindly given to me by Marie Smith.  

Marie came up to me while we were at the Palmetto guild meeting and showed me a wee box of shuttle holders she'd made and asked me to choose one for myself.  That was SUCH a hard decision but in the end this is the one I chose.  It's exquisitely made.  The thread is Wildflowers by Shirley Pence.  I am going to display this little beauty with my shuttles where I can see it (and them) each day.

On another point - the tatting cupboard is now tidy and the door is shut again.  It's taken me two/three weeks to unpack and put all the odds and ends away!!!

  4. Totally exquisite! Great choice! I've enjoyed tatting my own shuttle bag and it's such a joy to just let it sit next to my shuttles for admiring.

  12. It is pretty. Isn't that Sherry's thread, not Shirley? I think Marie shared the pattern for these. I don't remember on who's blog it's on though.
