 Nope.   Not a shuttle.   It is a plastic pin!  But I liked it and wanted it for my tatting tote.   A fun $5 find.

This lovely mug, with lace/button imprints was purchased at the Lubznik Art festival.   The maker said she uses crochet lace to imprint the pieces.  It is perfect in my sewing room.

 Lucky me with talented friends.   GF Beth made this delightful scissor holder -- The specialty stitches are stunning!!!

If you follow tatting blogs ... you will be familiar with Umi and Tsuru's blog.   She has hosted a few giveaways & I was one of the winners!   I know, right?   A beautiful pearl bracelet - and I've worn it several times.   Knowing you are familiar with the tatting -- don't hesitate to check out the jewelry, too!!! 

Not much tatting to share .... My sister was here for a visit (August) and we visited many vintage stores, antique malls, 2nd hand places.   The little clear box and drawers is fun for shuttles.    These 2 shuttles were spotted (and purchased) by my sister. 
 My sister is great to shop with.   She knows the good stuff from the not-so-great stuff, and has a good eye for value. 
  Isn't this cool? ($7 container)    It looks like it is made from the same plastic as some of my tatting shuttles.   

In the photo below, I made up some dish dresses for friends.   A spring cleaning sort of gift!!!  Knitting these charming dresses is a lot of fun.

What a lovely array of pictures! I really like your shuttle shaped pin and your coffee mug. I haven't been shopping with my sister in a long time. She also has an eye for quality and value. I have never yet found a vintage shuttle when I've been in an antique store. Your new-to-you shuttles are lovely!
