"I'm in the garage" - a very very cold garage, has spent the last few weeks making these post shuttles. Sadly though it doesn't look like they will make Christmas for those of you who live over the pond.
You may have spotted these shuttles in my new profile picture. The picture was taken before the snow disappeared. In fact the snow had really turned to ice and they kept sliding like little toboggans! The ones with two sprigs of holly on them are a little larger, 3 inches long as opposed to 2 1/2 inches.
The larger ones do not appear so shiny because they have only just had their sprigs of holly put on them, the finished ones will look smoother and shinier. This street name is a short walk from where I live and by coincidence a person I know lives there who tats!
Not the famous Hollywood in the USA!
All these post shuttles and some pop-a-bobbin shuttles will be on their way to Jane over the weekend, not by mail - because if you have been following her blog you will know that the Royal Mail is not very reliable at the moment. Therefore it will not be until next week before she will get them into her Etsy Shop.
This particular holly wood came from our late father's garden so before all of it goes Jane and I must have a shuttle or two made from the wood.
