The summer I was 17, Tommy James and the Shondells were ONE of my favorites.
I remember all the hot starry nights. Fair time, carnivals, sweet corn, innocent dreams of hanky-panky.
What's all that got to do with a tatting blog?
Well...it's summer...my birthday is coming up...so I got myself a birthday present.
Ever since I saw Shirley's shuttle made from a record, I had an idea brewing in my head. See...I still have my old 45 records from back then. How about if I had a shuttle made from a special record?
Shirley kindly agreed to make one so I sent her "I Think We're Alone Now". Great idea, huh? Except the 45's are thinner than the bigger records and she ran into a few problems.
Even so, she made me a shuttle. And THEN she made me another shuttle from a regular record AND a thread holder from my own record, plus she sent the rest of it back to me! How's that for customer service?
It's unlikely I'll tat with it on a regular basis but I sincerely appreciate her added effort to make me happy. I absolutely love it!
