We got through another week, although I am now describing myself as hanging in there by the skin of my teeth.
Your notes and photos are very much appreciated!
From Janice Barnhart
Thank you so much for keeping your blog going during this terrible time. Both your posts and the comments from the community you've fostered have been a boon to me during the past two weeks.
This is Pearl, whose words of wisdom are: "Keep calm and always wear your best strand." I only hope I can live up to her standards
A sunrise in Maine, taken by my husband earlier this week. He has relocated for the duration, as his job takes him out in public every day. This photo reminds me there is a reason we are making these sacrifices.
Meanwhile, my soon-to-be-80 mother, myself, and my 7 year old are holding down the farm in New Hampshire. Mom sure thought she'd packed her sewing machine away for good until she saw that our local hospital was requesting homemade masks. She's spent every day for the past two weeks, from sunup to sundown, sewing masks. It's this type of indomitable spirit that makes me certain Americans will overcome our current predicament.
And if you're looking for patterns and sewing help, our own Brenda McQueen Neil has instructions on YouTube.
Here's the first one
And the second one
And don't forget Brenda is from Canadia, so 56 degrees is CELSIUS, not Fahrenheit.
For those of you not from Canadia, that means 133 F.
There's a new post up at QueryShark!
Let's all hang in there! We will get through this because that's the only option.
