wearing a mask

Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

The word must be getting around about our mask making proficiency. We’ve had a request from the Air Force Base for 100 masks, and do not have that many on hand. We turn ours over to Roswell every Friday. I know this would be a very fast turn around, but if anyone could make even just a few and get them out to Jackie at the museum tomorrow between 12:00 and 1:00, perhaps we can quickly honor their request.

I’m not long back from a trip to Tops to get supplies for a very different Easter dinner. Most folks there were wearing masks, but in many different ways. This just happened to be in today’s NY Times. I found the mask to be uncomfortable and stuffy, but that is the case if it’s doing its protective task.

BTW I have been shopping during the Tues/Thursday old folks early morning hours at Tops for the past two weeks. Last week while chatting with the check out lady, she suggested that instead I come in the mid morning because the store is nearly empty. So today I followed her suggestion and she was right. Nearly no one else in the store, and I walked right up to the check out with no one ahead of me. I don’t know if that was just luck, but I’m going to try her mid-morning suggestion again next week.

    Maryellen, did you ever put out the next set of instructions for your “mystery ““? I’ve been waiting for and so far haven’t seen it. I will try to make more masks but I also have several request for them to so let’s see what happens. Thank you.

      Hi Theresa, we took a break from the corona mystery quilt for mask making about a week ago. Will be putting the next directions out on Monday to resume. Seems like folks might like to intersperse a little patchwork between the mask making.
