Hello All Thank you so much. I am not sure what I was thinking, but I have a better idea of what to do with four (or more) shuttles now. I see that there is more that one way to use them; Celtic tatting in different colors, that gorgeous multi-color lattice tatting and I had heard of encapsulation but had never seen it. That is fascinating! I need to finish my current project but I will play with the multi-color lattice.
