I dropped everything over the past two days and made masks for my family members. I'm following the directions from Kaiser Hospital. The directions add an extra pleat so the masks wraps around the nose a bit better. They would have been so much easier if I'd had elastic. The straps are the most time consuming element of the mask.
I had this great fabric in my stash to make masks for all of my granddaughters involved in FFA. The fabric is from the Land That I Love collection by Deb Strain for Moda. I think the girls will be more apt to wear them since there's a pig on it!
Raising animals for FFA is quite the commitment for the girls. Feeding times at the school farm are staggered so the kids aren't congregating at the same time. It's a very real possibility the county fair will be cancelled this summer. If that's the case, the girls will not be able to show and sell their animals. We may have an entire pig in our freezer! Maybe a turkey or two also. But I refuse to buy and eat a goat! They are just too cute and have so much personality.
We've been digging our way out again. We received another foot of snow over Sunday and Monday. It is beautiful, but I'm so over the snow, and look forward to Spring.
This is day #23 of our self isolation. I loved this quote that I saw on FaceBook. Be grateful today, and be grateful that you have a today.
