There are definitely ups and downs. But, one positive is this past week I was able to put my crafting skills to good use. On Wednesday, Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti recommended people start wearing non-medical, cloth face coverings.
There had been talk at the beginning of the week that this was coming. So, I set my knitting aside, and busted out the sewing machine.
Sewing is one of my newer crafts, which mean it’s where I have the last experience. But, I can sew a straight-ish seam and an okay curve so I made these masks. And I’ll be making more if I can find supplies!
I was able to make these for my family and friends. It definitely feels good to able to make things for people that is helpful during this time. And I have to say generally, seeing the way people are pulling together to help each other through these time is heartening.
But, busing out the sewing machine, means putting way the computer. I am behind on my editing. So, my next video I’m aiming to post on Tuesday , Wednesday the lates.
Also, I got a video request! I have not forgotten and will be shooting a video soon of my slowing down my knitting and concentrating on what I do with my left hand while lever knitting.
