I don’t know how to begin and whether to feel sad or happy. You see my story starts this way –
Last month I asked David to make me two shuttles - one of Birdseye Maple and one of Pommele Bubinga. I waited for a month for it to arrive and when it dint I quickly informed David about this. Now having had a bad experience with my parcel from lacemakerusa (which btw I still haven’t received and am sure it must have been lost in some country/ countries!) I was scared that I had lost this one as well.
David very sweetly took the news with a pinch of salt and recreated them for me…. All through out reassuring me that it was all part of the trade, I felt super bad!
Now the mother of all surprises…. Well what do ya know! Both parcels arrived; I received the first one just before 5 days of the next one… Phew! when I saw that parcel at my doorstep, you have no idea how I felt.
So when the next parcel came I dint want to send it back to him cos I was so jittery with the missing parcel experience, I did what I felt right… I bought this pair as well. I felt it was only fair thing to do. So now I have two pairs each.
Both the shuttles are such pleasure to work with… now I know when they say all’s well that end’s well, I had this guilt all along!
Here is an update on the next thing that I am working on, Beatrice by Iris Niebach. I am making this with Sherry’s thread using one of Dave shuttles ( I asked Dave to make one for me from his collection ) from GrizzlyMountainarts., and I love it.
Here is a picture of a heart necklace that I made for a friend of mine. She is leaving India for good getting married next month to a guy from Kobe, Japan.
This is probably the best thing that I could tat for her. I made this with the balance shuttle thread from Cornelia using one of small Dymondwood shuttles which I bought from Lacis some time back.
Amidst all this - I still try to squeeze in time for Nancy Drew! I've gone nuts for sure!
