Yesterday was dyeing day so I didn't get a lot done except for dyeing. We've also spent a bit of time making sure we are stocked and able to stay in for over a week. We did take in my car for a recall repair since I don't need it and I figure the mechanics need all the work that they can get. I took along a Clorox wipe and wiped down the touched surfaces before I turned it over to them. I'll do the same when I pick it up.
We went to Kroger after that. I felt a little silly wearing gloves and one of my homemade masks in the store but I'm glad I did. People were not being nearly as careful as they should. Some guy was coughing in the potato chip aisle. Of course a month ago I would have never noticed! Chris did a Costco run and it was clear that they have put much more thought into how they are handling controlling everything. Our local Food Lion is doing a nice job too of keeping people spaced apart. But it was good to see the stores well stocked so maybe the hoarders are done for now and everyone else can get their supplies.
Remember Monday when I was playing around with the penguin scraps and made the one sample postcard? I decided to play around with the rest of the scraps yesterday.
I just started sewing the scraps together into chunks that will be big enough for postcards.
I sewed and sewed until all of the scraps were stitched into chunks.
All those scraps made 16 card bases.
I made up a little stitch kit that I'll work through between crochet sessions in front of the TV.
Now it's time to get the Penguins on Ice quilted and I'm contemplating making more masks.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
