Got my shuttles but not real pleased

First of all in my excitement to begin shuttle tatting again, I blame myself for the unhappy mood I am in!!

I ordered shuttles from joann.com 1st of all I payed more than handy hands (shoulda shopped around 1st but i was too excited) 2nd of all they sent my order wrong... I had ordered a plastic one with the bobbin to try it out, 2 red ones and the plastic tortise shell ones. Well they sent me 2 plastic with the bobbin and 1 red one I did manage to get my tortise shell ones right probably because they came 2 in the pack... I also had ordered clay and stuff from there about 2 days after I ordered the shuttles it took them a whole week to process my order for the clay when the shuttles took only 1 day to process. I am not real pleased with joann.com at the moment my mom also ordered fabric fromt here at the beginnig of the month and has heard nothing from them I am not slamming them its just my personal opinion. i am glad I got my shuttles and will use them :)

Here are my new babies

I do have 2 other shuttles I ordered from Etsy 1 from LADY SHUTTLE MAKER I just couldnt hold off ordering my favorite blue one any longer lol and a small wooden hand made shuttle from SISTERMAIDE WOODWORKS. I just cant wait to get my goodies lol

Ok hubby will be home soon and then it will be supper time...
I wander what I should tat next??

Thanks for the link to the Sistermaid woodworks! I hadn't seen them before and their prices are somewhat reasonable for a plain wooden shuttle. Very cool! Thanks. Sorry JoAnne's got your order mixed up. Hope your mom hears from them soon about her order! :)
