whew! it is hot and humid here, and will be all week. it is 10:30 pm and still 82 degrees and 83% humidity. this is North Dakota for heaven's sake. it is only supposed to get down to 77 tonight. we do not have any air conditioning, unless you count numerous fans.
so no tatting, too hot and humid. I have a test tat to do for someone, so hope things improve
You may have seen the post by Fox at Tat-ology .
I never expected anything in return, but look what came in my mailbox today.
The beads on the left are 2 shades of teal, in the center pink and an assortment of blue seed and bugle beads. on the right is a bag of findings ~ cabone rings, buttons and other interesting stuff. below that are 2 threads, both Lizbeth with some very pretty coppery beads.
Thank you Fox.
a couple posts ago, I mentioned that I had ordered some Tattler reusable canning lids. They came in the mail yesterday.
I knew that reusable canning lids had been available years ago and can't figure out why they are no longer available.
these are modeled on the old ones that I have
here is a scan of both the glass Ball brand and plastic Tattler canning lids.
I have several dozen of the glass lids.
This is a look at the differences in the old screw rings for the glass lids and a comparison to the canning rings you can use to can with now.
the old one seems to be made out of zinc and is deeper to accommodate the thickness of the glass.
one of the reasons that I don't use the glass lids, is that I do not have any rubber rings that worked with them, and I only have a very few screw rings. the Tattler rubber rings will work with the glass lids. so now I know where to get more rings, but I only have a few of the zinc screw lids.
One more thing I did today.
Hope everyone has good weather and time for lots of tatting the rest of this weekend.
