Sussex Shuttle

My cousin brought me a gift.
From Lewes -  Sussex, Britain.
 How sweet is that!


For a non-tatter to spend time in shops looking for a shuttle as a gift - well, that kind of loving behaviour deserves a newly-tatted car decoration, don't you think?

She liked this a lot. 
Said she would rather wear it than hang it in her car!


So, it has gone to its new home in an Auto,
and now resides in Stratford.... 
Ontario!

The pattern for this and lots of other 
I love this book.  
Thanks, Jon!


MY New Car Decoration!

This is one of my designs: The Duchess

I had fun picking out a new motif; 
they do get all bleached out 
and bedraggled-looking,hanging
 for months in the window...

  1. Beautiful, and what a lovely idea to have a piece hanging in the car.
    I love your red motif gorgeous colours,
    Now I don't think you would box him up. But he's really pushing his luck sitting in a box, or does he want it as a new bed.
    Have a nice weekend
    Love to Gian
    Hugs Margaret

  3. Oh Gian! Shoe box fit for a king. Reminds me of when my girls were little and they'd left a paper sack on the floor. I went to pick it up and there was a cat in it. :)

  4. Is it a Bone Shuttle? - or ivory? - I can't tell from the picture. It's a really wonderful gift!

    1. Hi, Maureen, It is bone. I know - I was so surprised when she gave it to me. She really kept her eyes open while on the road. Lucky me!

  5. Is Gian hinting for a new pair of shoes? It looks like a tight fit for a bed.......
    How nice to be surprised and spoiled. Lovely tats. Great idea for hanging one in the car window!

    1. As a teenager I always scorned the bad boys that hung things in their cars... I thought it was so tacky! Now, as a grandmother, I think it is very cool! How funny is that!

    1. Hi, Jess,
      They are so much fun to tat! My next one for me just might be tatted with a Messy Jessy Chilled Mess! Wouldn't that be pretty?
