Finally it seems that the winds have calmed down. But, we are back to grey, gloomy weather and rain is in the forecast. No walking since Sunday! Which has me in a bit of a fit...but, I experience pretty severe ear aches in wind and I don't find it pleasant to walk when it is in the 40's and damp. But, I found other things to do!
Like make masks! I've been making do with using bandanas and I am really fine with that, but I thought I had some elastic in my stash and I have some very pretty fabrics. So....
I found the elastic. It must have come from my Mom's sewing things (buttons, spools of thread, snaps, etc.).
Look at that! 29 cents for this elastic at Woolworth's no less. Woolworth's hasn't been in business since??? Showing this card to Fletch made him remember his Mom giving him $0.25 to shop at Woolworth's when they would go to downtown Norfolk. He said he could get a little metal car and some plastic dinosaurs with that quarter and sometimes even have a bit of change!! Those were the days. I used to love going to Woolworth's.
Anyway I made two masks, both the same. Different fabrics on each side.
I will fix the first one I made today. It is too loose for me and Fletch tried it last night and it's too loose for him. I'll just open it up and trim off some of the elastic. I love both of these fabrics and I have many more pieces of different fabrics that will make great masks. However, not much elastic left...and I'm sure none to be found anywhere.
Meanwhile, it is Thursday and I have a bunch of financial reports to run and send out, so I'd best get started (thankful for my large monitor this morning!). Have a wonderful Thursday!
