Quilt With Us

I'm getting a bit tired of not visiting my neighbors, friends and family. So far only one case in my county. But the threat is always in my mind. I'm making face masks. The quilt I started is taking a back seat for now. Every time I go to the store (which is not a lot) I look like a lab tech. with my mask, rubber gloves and my coat on. I will be glad to shed all three. To keep me occupied when not sewing is watching comedians on the computer. I happened to get one of Foster Brooks the other night. I laughed so hard at him. Easter wasn't the same not being able to go to church. My Pastor gave his sermon on the computer. I hope you and your families are all safe and keeping well.

NY has been hit the hardest, BUTTT...that is 6hrs. from here. We have 400 empty beds and the hospital has 26 Covid patients. We have to get moving. This has become a political disaster. 

Gary has been busy with testing new vents and dealing with administration issues. We definitely have learned a lot through this.

We have been so busy with conference calls and zooming that the days seem to fly by. I have around 300 masks ready to go to doctors offices and the children"s hospital. NY is mandatory wearing masks. I have used up every single piece of fabric I had in storage. I get to start all over!!!

I have been really surprised at the number of people who believe they are not even allowed to go outside in to their own backyards!  No common sense whatsoever!  I took a little ride the other day too just to get out of the house.  My daughter got engaged on Valentine's Day & someone told me about an event center her in-laws own so I went to check it out.  It is a barn that is over 100 years old that has been fixed up, but still very rustic.  My 1st thought was "It needs a barn quilt on the front."  

We have only had 4 cases in our county here in MO, but that is actually kind of surprising because the 2 counties on the east & west of us have had a lot more & we interact with those 2 counties a lot.  I can sure understand why people in the more densely populated areas would have more cause for concern though.  I just couldn't imagine living where I would have to deal with so many people on a subway, train or bus every day.

Kathy, I think it's nice you can go to work. Being house bound gets boring after awhile. I take walks and jump in my car and go for a ride just to get out of this apartment. 

PQ I hope for your sake this virus will end and your cattle prices will go back up.

Nothing has changed here, except for plummeting cattle prices.  The very nature of our business and where we live means we're always isolated.  And we like it that way, so it is business as usual around here. We never went to town much anyway,  but when we go, we are not afraid.   

I can't believe the fear that has taken over this country.  I won't comment too much more other than to say I think we are in dangerous territory when we consider "the other person" a biological threat.

While everyone else gets to stay home, I get to go to work. My daughter keeps giving me a bad time because I am working. I don’t have much choice.  Where I live and work the only way I can stay home is if I am sick like last week with the tendinitis in my wrist, if we aren’t sick we can’t just stay home and collect the unemployment benefits like everyone else.  I don’t mind working at Safeway gas station because there is a full bullet proof wall between employees and customers.  It’s nice to see my customers and how well they are doing during this pandemic

Janet, it sounds like you're making the best out of a bad situation also.  My sewing room is a total disaster with scrap fabric pulled out of every nook and cranny to make these face masks. It's nice to be able to keep in touch on the computer.

It is not easy, but I'm just trying to take it one day at a time.  I got out a bargello quilt that I started on May 13, 2011 in a class with a guild I belonged to at the time.  I didn't care for the way it was going together so put it aside.  I am assembling it differently now & I am hoping to have the top finished by the time this disaster is over with.  I am also working on a Disappearing Pinwheel quilt.  I have also been doing a lot of knitting while watching HGTV programs.  I love Foster Brooks too.  The skits he did with Dean Martin were an absolute hoot.
