Look what came in the mail yesterday!  It's that Gorgeous shuttle that Lace-lovin' Librarian made and offered in a giveaway on her blog last week.  I won and she had it in the mail and here in record time!  

I have to say that the pictures do not do it justice.  And I love that it has no point . . . those things are dangerous.  I really love it, Thank you so much Diane!

What's more, she included a lovely hank of HDT.  I am pretty sure it's Yarn Player's thread.  It's size 30 and the color is called Grape Punch.  It's a wonderful combination of purples and pinks.

I wasted absolutely no time (well, I did have to wait until after supper) in winding that thread onto an ez bob and the shuttle and started tatting with it.  I think it will make some lovely tatted shuttles and since I need to replace the one I lost . . . . well, here goes!

I wasted even less time starting the tatted motif's for the shuttles.  One is done (except the ends) and the second is started.  The shuttle is very nice to use and the thread is wonderful.  I usually use size 20, but this is working fine for me so maybe I shall start using more size 30 thread.  (I'm not up to 40 yet, at least I don't think so.)

Thank you so very much Diane - this was a very special gift.

I'm so glad you like your new shuttle, Teresa! When I saw the thread in my stash, I decided it simply had to go with the shuttle. I love that the thread will become a shuttle for you to treasure for years to come!
