New Shuttles

Sue Anna mailed to me 2 beautiful pop-a-bobbin shuttles filled with Wildflower and lime green, Lizbeth #20 Threads. The first shuttle is Cocobolo Rosewood with the lime green thread. The pattern can be found in the Antique Pattern Library and Gina from Threads of a Tatting Goddess, is using the pattern for a challenge in vintage motifs. I decided to play around with it and using split rings one can tat till the thread runs out. How does one become a pro with split rings?? By reading and tatting patterns from the Queen of Split Rings...Jane Eborall!!!! Thank you Gina for sharing this on your blog.
The second shuttle Cedar with Wildflower. The butterfly shows the thread off and pattern can be found in the Handy Hands Cat. The pattern for the bookmark/edging is Spring Flowers by Julie Patterson.
The purple "What is it" is my Day 2 with Jane Eborall's, TIAS.. More on this latter.

Beautiful colors! It's great to see them while my days here are filled with a lot of white and gray(it's winter in Michigan). :)
