Answering Questions From Yesterday's Entry

Thanks to everyone for the compliments on yesterday's TTT blog entry! Some of you had questions about the items in the pic, so I'll talk a little about those items.

The shuttles are wood & are made by Georgia Seitz. Georgia's contact info is on her online tatting class:
http://www.georgiaseitz.com/
I don't know how others find out about when her shuttles are available. I'm in the online classes & received an email with pics of shuttles that were available. You may be able to get that info by emailing here (see the link.)

The thread winders. Well, that was me making do with what I could find. I went to Hobby Lobby, & in their wood crafts section, they have all types of wood cut-outs. I found these nicely, already painted snowflakes. They're the perfect size for a 50 yd skein of HDT, & they're nice for winding off those leftover threads that you just don't want to throw away. I found some rub-on transfers & used them on a couple of the snowflakes.

The little hook came in a set of 3 from lacis.com, & handyhandstatting.com carries them as well. I use the smallest of the three most often, so I attached a chain to it & this pretty mother of pearl ring. The ring came from silverneedle.com. If you haven't been to that site, it's a must visit!! On the left side of the home page choose Product Lines, then Accessories, Gifts & Gadgets. Have fun!!

The tea cup. I'm collecting tea cups for my granddaughter. Hobby Lobby had flower tea cups one year, so every time I went to Hobby Lobby, I picked up a different flower tea cup. They're all so cute!
