thought for todayMarch 16, 2020
Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Well a lot has developed since my last post.
Thanks to all of you who are commenting. The comments help to encourage me to keep posting, and I hope they also are fun for others to read.
Since our March meeting is cancelled, I will continue the deal of entering the names of commenters into a drawing for prizes until we have our birthday celebration…whenever that will be.
Are you one of the hoarders who is emptying store shelves faster than the store can keep up? I mean really people, how much toilet paper do you need?!
Or are you one of those who is taking no precautions at all, hoping that this will all just go away overnight? I hope you are listening to the doctors and other medical experts. Taking care of yourself is also taking care of your community.
Let’s talk about what we can do to make these days a bit more enjoyable, especially if we are quarantined for awhile. I’m pretty confident that most of us have some fabric at home we could work with. Let’s brainstorm some ideas for a project/challenge we could each work on in our sewing rooms, little by little according to the “rules” of our challenge, to be shared at a meeting following our release from “social distancing”.
I’ll start us off, but I’d love to get ideas from you to add along the way. Here’s this weekend’s throw down. Go through your stash (no purchasing new fabric if at all possible!) and choose a color scheme. Find 2 fat quarters (or equivalent amount) of a light value, 2 of a medium value, and 2 darks. Also choose a background: white or “creams”. That’s it to start. More to come next week.
Throw those ideas at me, ladies!
