Post Shuttles with a difference

Following on from the wood that Sue Hanson gave us whilst in London, some shuttles are in the process of being made.   I say 'process' as these pictures do not show them fully completed, they still need some more sanding and oiling.    But thought you would like a quick look at them.

The woods are Yellowheart, Violet Rosewood and Pink Ivory

A request from Sue was to have an indent for the finger/thumb on the top of the shuttle and here it is on a holly one.

I am still tatting the inserts for the mirror magnets, here is a selection.

They are going to be Christmas giveaways unless they find new homes before then!


  1. Sue Hanson, the instigator! Your I'm in the Garage is a magnificent wood worker!! The mirror magnets are artfully embellished!

  3. Slight indent for thumb/finger make a shuttle comfortable. Good idea. Very nice mirror magnets. You and 'im in the Garage have been busy while sis is away playing in the states. Karen in OR
