What a day!

I picked up my mail at the post office today, and there was a packet of beautiful vintage shuttles that I had purchased from England! They're in wonderful condition, and I can hardly wait to try them out!

I was surprised that I had some time to tat today. My sub assignment was changed last minute, and it just happened to work out in my favor... I was able to tat while listening to high school students sing!

I had been carrying this Bloomin' Ice Drop with me for several days. I managed to finish it when I got home.

My pointer finger has been sore at times, and I saw a lady online with a tension ring. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm hoping this little copper ring from ItsVera will help when my finger gets sore.

Not sure which style would work better for me, I ordered two! I think I like the stability of the wider band, but I'll try them both and let you know how they work for me.

Tomorrow is another sub day, and I know that it will be jam packed. I do love working with kids!


  1. Your boomin' is beautiful!
    What does a tension ring do?
    Got A package from England yesterday too!

  2. Tension ring is interesting, I look forward to hearing how well they work. Love the blooming ice drop, I think I’ll have to try it!

  3. Intriguing rings. I had never seen anything like these before. Will await your review with great interest :)
    Soooo pretty Ice drops!

  4. Never seen a ring like that I will be interested to see if it works for you.
    Lovely ice drop, must try the pattern when I feel better, I'm in serve pain at the moment it could be shingles they think.

    1. Hope you're on the mend soon! Shingles are so awful! My husband had them a few years ago and my dad had them this year.
