Sheltering in Place

IMG 1486
Hello friends. we find ourselves in the midst of a very strange spring season this year. The sun is shining, birds and bees are flitting around, and our favorite green friends are returning. All the while, Covid-19 is a dark, lurking shadow that lies beneath any of the joy or abandon usually associated with spring.  The good news is, the violet seeds I scattered last fall have taken are are now in bloom!  

Tom and I are in the shelter in place mode, along with most of the rest of the world right now. I am a homebody, anyway, and except for morning walks, I haven’t left our property since Feb. 29th. Though I have missed seeing my favorite people, in other ways I have truly enjoyed having an empty schedule. Our cats are supremely satisfied to have door-knob service people at the ready 24/7.

In between letting cats in and out, I’ve been making Batik masks for friends and family that needed them. I am a bit of a fabric hoarder, especially fat quarters and 1/2 yard pieces, because I am a quilter. I’ve made 28 masks, so far, and it has barely put a dent in my fabric stash.

Topped off at 30 masks! Then I ran out of elastic.

I am having a heck of a time with block editor today. Hope I can change it back!
