Shrinky Kink Shuttles

Here's my "learning Equipment" or the Shrinky Dink (Registered
trade mark) shuttles. They are about 1 1/2" long. The cord is a rat-tail type cord. Very heavy. They grab the knot and (hopefully) start tatting. As soon as the student is mastering the "flip" I let them choose a real shuttle with #5-#10 thread. There are 2 layers with the thread glued into the center.

Jane & I bookmarking

I noticed that Jane was making bookmarks for Ring of Tatters. I had some people at church that had done especially kind things for me so went into a flurry of making these mindless flowers for bookmarks. I have a new laminator I just had to try out. It worked great. This is size 40 thread and I used my computer to do the wording on medium card stock. I did about 40 of them. Does this count as one of my 25 motifs?
