Cross earrings and new supply of wood

I have been making quite a few of these earrings and even given some away, the surplus will go into stocks for the Christmas Church Fair at which I hope to sell some pairs.

Stocks of the exotic woods for the shuttles were getting low so we have been buying more wood.

The price of ebony has gone up considerably and so the shuttles made from that particular wood may have to increase in price.  Beside the ebony in the picture is purple heart.  In the front on the left hand side is Fox's silver maple cut into usable blocks. 

More pop-a-bobbin shuttles are on their way to Jane this weekend, they are just being tested and packaged at the moment.  


  1. Love the earrings, such vibrant colours. The wood will keep 'im in the garage busy.

  2. Oh, remind me to get some more cherry (if that's what it was) from Vicci. She offered you more when I saw her the other week. IF you come up this weekend we can go round there together.

  3. Ear rings look nice, love to see the wood too.

  4. Love the earrings, and gorgeous colours.
    Love the purple wood, looks so vibrant.

  5. I love that you've tatted so many crosses. That's quite an undertaking!

    I would so love to have a shuttle out of Fox's silver maple. I'm going to have to keep a very close eye on Jane's shop!

  6. My sister has a tree in her front yard that allegedly is birch, it must come down sadly. Would that be a nice wood to make shuttles with?

  7. Oops she has a beech tree not birch.

  8. Thanks for the offer Connie but we have a lot of beech at the moment as the same thing has happened to someone we know who offered us the remains of their tree.
