Tatting with shuttles

Today was not the most productive day!  My hands still feel bruised and tired from wire wrapping. Tomorrow is Tatting day over at our local Bevely's.  So I spent time watching the tatting disc from the book, Learn to Tat by Janette Baker.  It is a great book to learn shuttle tatting.  If you want to learn needle tatting I reccomend,  Learn Needle Tatting Step by step, by Barbara Foster.  Today was a good review plus I practised using two shuttles.   Here is a couple of pictures of what I made. 

This is the first tatted butterfly Ive made in more than 20 years.

This is a sample done with two shuttles.

It will be fun having others to tat with tomorrow.  Just hope I can keep up with everyone there.  Tatting is easy to learn with a good book and can actually be relaxing!
