I never thought that we would have to wear masks out in public, no handshakes or hugs, and standing 6 ft from another. Meetings on line, shopping on line( I am a toucher, I need to feel fabric before I buy it). It is hard for me to be positive and not allow myself to go to the dark places and “What if ____happens?” So after cleaning the sewing room I decided to start making masks. We have been, averaging about 40 masks a day. With this going on I haven’t been doing much more than sitting in the sewing room sewing, hubby is answering the door, cutting elastic, and fabric. An assembly line at its best. We even got silly making Sugar Skull ones and I was surprised at how fast those went.
One gentleman wanted one big enough to put his beard in. His beard rested on his chest. After thinking a while I made one with a pocket on the inside bottom of the mask. He was able to put the beard into it and then tied the mask on. Looked ok. Later tonight I will be writing the pattern up so I don’t forget how it was done, just in case.
On a much happier note, we have had quiet a bit of fun with the “Bear Hunt”. We have 6 Bears out on our front swing , and they change where they go on a day to day basis. The younger kids and parents stop as they walk by to see what the bears are doing.
As you can tell not a lot of chances to visit so I am taking advantage of it. Just everyone be safe and take care of yourself and each other.
