Package arrived!

Being single and probably a little strange I buy myself a birthday gift. Since I was a student for many years this is usually a small gift. This year, I splurged and ordered one of Sherry's lovely shuttles as well as some silk thread.
I like this shuttle because the buttons on it remind me of the Borrowers and the Littles. The Borrowers is a child's book about little people who scavenge a living off the normals (us). The Littles is a cartoon based on the book. The buttons on the shuttle look like something they would scavenge.
The colors I ordered were Spring poppies and Granny Delicious in silk. The scanner doesn't show their colors very well so I skipped any pictures. The shine and the quality of the thread is very good.
Thanks Sherry, that package arrived in great shape!


  1. Happy Birthday to you! What a great gift to give yourself for your birthday. I often give myself tatting gifts because no one else would, LOL!

  2. Happy Birthday! Your shuttle is beautiful! I remember the Borrowers and the Littles also. I haven't thought of them in years.

  3. Geesh, I thought I commented on this post already....I don't know what happened.

    Anyhow, I love the Littles too and I just saw the new movie about the Borrowers just the other day.

    I am so glad your shuttle arrived safely!

    Happy Belated Birthday!


Anyone out there? Say hi if you are......
