Fired up again
Friday, April 03, 2020      6 comments

I can't listen to the news anymore. It is just so scary but yet I want to know whatever I can about what is happening. One of my brothers called this morning and wanted to know if I was making masks and could I send him 17. Six of them sized ... Read more
Today we have BLAH
Thursday, April 02, 2020      6 comments

I'm a bit overwhelmed by the feeling I really want to help what ever needs helping with but at the same time I can't even make a tiny dent with my help. Sort of let my usually in control depression get hold of me today. Along with another wint... Read more
Ranting & Raving

It's one of those let me stand on my soap box speeches. All I've heard for days and days is to stay home and the virus can't spread. Then they talk about places in this country that have the least amount of people covered by insurance with the... Read more
Great to be out a bit
Tuesday, March 31, 2020      5 comments

It was an absolutely beautiful day to go out. Since I had to pick up drugs I did my shopping at Walmart. I kind of wanted to go to the local owned grocery but didn't want to do 2 stores. Walmart does not have the kind of things I would have l... Read more
Chasing my own tail
Monday, March 30, 2020      8 comments

I've been roaming around I guess chasing my own tail. Not really getting anything finished but finding all kinds of interesting things. I'm also letting myself be pushed to try the so many mask patterns that seem to pop up every day. I might ... Read more
May as well be living
Sunday, March 29, 2020      5 comments

It is beginning to feel a little bit like I'm living on a deserted island or planter. My only communication device is a hand held little black thing and my entertainment involves an odd machine that puts pieces of fabric together in odd ways an... Read more
You'd almost think they know
Sunday, March 29, 2020      8 comments

I have so many little helpers. All 3 of them seem to want attention at different times while I'm doing different things. Fat cat always thinks the only reason I go into the kitchen is to feed him and Buck is under the impression that every tim... Read more
It's offical...stay at home!

Like I haven't been doing this since March 15 when I got home from the quilt retreat. I will need to go get some groceries next week. I'm on my last lb. of butter, my last box of kleenex and my last case of water. So I'm going to be good and ... Read more
Took a walk today...
Thursday, March 26, 2020      5 comments

It was nearly 50 when I got home from the post office so I took Buck on a short walk to the park and back. It's about a block but since I start to huff and puff when walking we will have to work up to more. Will try to do it at least once a da... Read more
On and On and ON
Wednesday, March 25, 2020      4 comments

I've only been stuck in my house now for 10 days. I have been to the store twice but once for the elastic I ordered for pick up. In general I'd say I'm pretty good at social distancing because I like to be at home working on my stuff.....but I... Read more
Wash, Rinse & Repeat
Tuesday, March 24, 2020      3 comments

This is getting old. Every day I sew some, I do a load of laundry and I try to clean something. Then there are the things I should be doing.....throwing things away (decluttering) washing windows, even going outside but I'd much rather lay on ... Read more
The strangest shortage of all
Monday, March 23, 2020      5 comments

There is an elastic shortage for making masks. I bought 2 small packages at Walmart last Sat. I have used one of them up. Then I was lucky enough to get 50 yrds from Home Sew..but they are out now. After 2 local fabric stores posted they co... Read more
Thank You to my SP friends
Sunday, March 22, 2020      5 comments

Many of you know I love nothing better than a good reason to make something. This is a good reason. The masks are fairly easy and I did have to buy elastic but fabric is no problem. I only have a little bit of it. I will still sit in the eve... Read more
Found a new mission today
Saturday, March 21, 2020      8 comments

I did end up in town today to pick up the elastic I needed to make face masks for workers in hospitals. My children have both asked me to make some. I have made one and go it's approval form them so I cut up a bunch more and will sew a lot tom... Read more
Marching along
Friday, March 20, 2020      8 comments

I even went to the post office today. Haven't been there in over a week. I know I've ordered several things off the internet and didn't get any packages. Dang I would have loved a present of sorts. Sometimes I forget what I order but I know ... Read more
