New shuttle

My sweet husband surprised me with a new shuttle. It looks better in person than in the picture.
It feels wonderful and is a very nice size, but the tips are very tight.  I even tried size 70 thread, which I very rarely tat with, and it was too tight for that as well.  I’ll have to fix that before I can tat with it, but isn’t it pretty?
My husband is so thoughtful!

  1. What a wonderful, thoughtful present! Enjoy it! I have used a metal nail file in the past with a tight shuttke. – just slide it ONE way through the tight spot. One move at a time, till it is right. : )
