Since the rest of the doily is secret until I finish this last row and 1/2, I thought I would show you pictures of my shuttles Daddy made for me. The black ones are African Ebony, the red ones are Purple Heart and the others are assorted Maple (I think.) They are not my favorite to use as I prefer the thread on the inside of the shuttle, but they are treasures no less. The metal you see is where he inserted a piece of metal and bent the end to give me a hook but it didn't work very well. I have snipped them off and need to file them down good.
Some of you know my dad was a master craftsman in wood. My home is full to overflowing with treasures he made, including furniture and hand carved pictures. I also have lots of treasures my mother crocheted, knitted, quilted and made in ceramics. I am truly blessed!
