How are you all managing this Virus.

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…

Together We Can Face Mask for Care of Non-COVID19 Cases

The St. Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon, has asked volunteers to follow these directions for making masks for them. They are using them in the hospital for healthcare workers caring for non-COVID19 patients, so they can save their surgical masks for those on the front lines. We can drop them off at one of the local Albertson's stores during…

Olson style face mask

Here's one I just made today. After I took this picture, I made a filter using some interfacing I had on hand. Slipped it behind that white panel in the first view of the mask. I think it will work well enough. I heard the vacuum cleaner bags had to be HEPA bags to work the best. I don't have any. If I hadn't found the interfacing I was going to try a coffee filter.…

Not suppose to happen to me

Hello everyone.  Yes we’ve all had a rough month with this virus, I hope everyone is well.  I’ve been working (yes I work at a grocery store), until today anyway.  I’ve been having problems with my left wrist over the last few days. This morning when I went to work it just seemed like it was getting worse so I went home. It took a while but I finally got in to see a doctor.  Turns out I have tendinitis. A wrist brace and meds and a week off work I am finally home but what to do for a week?…

Update

Good morning-

Good news...My nephew is doing a lot better. Had a few tough days, this definitely is a tough disease to kill once it gets into your lungs. We were able to get him on the Chloroquine and Z pack along with a nasty antibiotic.

After doing some research on face masks...if, you are making them, keep in mind that vacuum cleaner bags are a great filter. I am making mine with a pocket to slip in a new filter everyday. One bag can make many 5x6 filters.

Face masks

Our local hospital had a different pattern for face masks that they can use for health care workers. I made 11 of them yesterday afternoon. I have a serger, so it streamlined the process. Takes longer to cut them out than to sew them. They will add the elastics themselves, and are using 2 sided skin tape instead of metal strips. 003902oo-1%20Olson%20Mask%20V07.pdf. …

Good news...bad news

First the bad...my nephew is in ICU with the virus, was improving...but spiked a temp and difficulty breathing last night. Apparently, this is how the virus cycles.



Great news...Finally, Gary and his partner in inventilating patients have been summoned to the White House at 8am to demonstrate how to vent two patients on one vent. If, they would use TCAV method to begin with... they wouldn't need to double up. We are hoping this will begin to change standard of care for ventilating… Continue

Home Sweet Home......in Oregon

I am home bound now as our governor issued a ‘stay at home’ order this morning.  We can go to the grocery store or medical appointments or certain jobs. My husband is still working because his company is considered essential, they make parts for military and medical equipment.  My mom is in an assisted living facility and no visitors have been allowed there for over a week.  I call her daily as well as some of my siblings and my sons.  I have a quilt that I…

Returned home

We decided to come home two weeks early. Not fun when everyone is stressed. Woke up this morning to the fire alarm going off. False alarm but scared us. Then the phones started ringing. My 45 yo nephew was admitted in Indiana for what sounds like the virus. Unfortunately, he waited a week thinking it was a cold. Impress on your people to not wait...this moves fast. Luckily, he's not on a vent yet. When it hits your family it"s terrifying. Prayers for all

Making the best of it.

This Corona virus is making it's way here. We have a few cases of this down state but so far none here in Calais.  Everything is closed except WM and two grocery stores and gas stations. I'm getting some Spring cleaning done and making progress in the sewing room during this quarantine. I'm praying that we all stay healthy and get through this.

Happy International Quilters Day

I hope everyone has a chance to do at least a little bit of quilting today.  I certainly didn't need another project to work on, but I decided to go ahead and participate in Edyta Sitar's 2020 mystery that started yesterday.  So I'm going to spend part of today working on block #2.  Need 8 of them, but they should be fairly quick to make.

Quilting Fabric Is Good for More Than Quilts!

Deaconess Health System in Indiana is asking the public to make fabric face masks for health professionals.

The COVID-19 pandemic has moved federal health officials this month to liberalize their recommendations about which face protection front line health-care workers should use to ward off the…

Crazy Quilt purse

I finished another purse today.  The design is from Kreative Kiwi, which is a machine embroidery site from New Zeeland.  I made the front & back using my embroidery machine & then assembled the purse using my regular sewing machine.  I decided to add the heart shaped button to make the flap lay down flatter.  The fabrics were purchased in 2007 and were part of a line that promoted ovarian cancer research.  …
