Today in the mail at work, I received an envelope from my folks.
It had a lump in it and I couldn't wait until I got home to find out what was in it, so I opened it at work.
I was this shuttle that had belonged to my Great Aunt Hazel. I hadn't known that she tatted. She was an older lady when I was little so I didn't know her very well. I can't recall exactly when she died but it is over 30 years ago. As you can see the ends are still tight even tho it has thread wound on it. The scan isn't clear enought to show you how pretty this shuttle is. I am not a fan of plastic tortoise shell, but this is very nice.
I now have shuttles from my grandmother Eulalia ( isn't that a pretty name?) who taught me to tat, and GA Hazel.
Thanks mom and dad for finding this and thinking enough of me to pass this on.
I feel very blessed.
