New Tatted Shuttles!

This one was made using the Grape Punch thread that Lace Lovin' Librarian sent me (thank you!).  It came out darker, which was expected and I think I like the thread better this way.

 
This was made from Lizbeth Blue River Glades which is my new favorite color thread.  It was meant to replace the shuttle made with blues that I lost but I think it's much prettier.  We'll have to see if I can use the pick or not - I am usually ok with them on small shuttles, but these are pretty large.

This was some thread that came from Mom's stash - we found it in the storage unit when we sorted that stuff out.  It may have been Mom's or may have been her mother's, I don't know (maybe she'll chime in and tell us?).  Anyway, I had to remove the outside of the ball because the outside thread was smoke damaged but the inside didn't seem to be too brittle or break.  I really love how it came out in the shuttle.  I might have to share the ball with Dena so she can make a shuttle from it too.

They are lovely! I need, okay want, a couple of these. What size thread did you use? Is that pattern Stumpy? Please let me know how they work.
