Hello Everyone in Tat land

I, as many of you in Southern Ontario, have been enjoying some very unseasonal warm weather. Not just nice blue skies but warm breezes and an itch to do some outside work. Well I did spend some time out of doors on Friday and Saturday and I have the sun burn to show for it.
Believe me I wish I was not working the garden but doing some tatting. It still surprises me how quickly my skin burns these days. I am from the generation that would sun bath for hours (with baby oil on my skin) and the local radio would do a *BEEP* so you would know when to turn over. Not now a days. So today is going to be spent inside tatting. But I'm not sure what I'm going to work on. I did do some shopping a couple of weeks a go so maybe something with beads, again!! Lol
I am looking forward to Wednesday because I will be picking up my order from Handy Hands. I had the order sent to New Jersey and my sister is picking it up this weekend and I can get it from her when she returns to Canada. I'll share a picture with you of my purchases later.

That is about all for now. I'm going to go and put some lotion on my burn and get tatting. Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.


  1. Owie is right! Oh, my the seventies, right? I remember the baby oil sunbathing days. Only our radio didn't beep to turn over, LOL! Well, take care of that burn Happy Easter and Happy Tatting!

  2. LOL! Never did the beep and so often suffered the burn!
    Ouch! Stay out of the sun, woman!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! You are literally the color of a beet! Take it easy there, sister. There's still lots of warm weather ahead. ;)

  4. I'm going to share with you the ultimate secret to getting rid of sunburns- cold Vineagar. No, not on your fries but on your skin. It gets rid of the stinging and the burn. Trust me I'm a red head.

  5. I agree about the vinegar. Smells but it works. Yikes....I wanna take that necklace off! OUCH!

  6. Thanks victats! The vinegar works. When I got home from work today I was very stingy and itchy. I put some vinegar on a cotton ball and dab it on. It cold the skin right down. The only problem is, I really want some fries now!!!
