Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Well you ladies certainly came through! We filled the request from the Air Force Base with masks to spare. The remainder of the masks are going to Roswell. We received a nice thank you from the doctor who is coordinating the mask drive for Roswell. When I figure out how to get it from my e-mail to the blog I will share it with all of you. She is very complimentary of our sewing skills (are you surprised?) and thankful for the time and effort we are spending.
Remember that challenge to get to 1500 masks? Well we are currently at 1,467 so I don’t think we’ll have any trouble getting to 1500!
You guys are awesome, as the kids say! The world needs more generous people like all of you.
I’m really proud of all of us. The need is still there, so please keep in sewing. Do you need ties? Let me know and I’ll bring them to the museum. I’m there every Monday, Wednesday and Friday noon til 1:00.
Well if this helps. I’ve made 55 additional masks that I had not told Mary Ellen about but that includes the 20 I gave to Jackie today. Does that mean we need to up the challenge?
I just gave 7 masks to neighbors and a woman with a serious illness, and send 14 more to the Rochester Presbyterian Home – the nursing home where my daughter works.
I have made & given to families 72 face masks. Each family had someone with a child or parent with an illness that makes them vulnerable. I am continuing to make them. I also made pattern for a doll face mask. Fits 18 inch doll. Made for 5 yr old with autism to help them adjust to wearing mask.
Karen, I love your idea of making the mask for the child’s doll. I’m sure it was a big hit. I saw some chocolate bunnies yesterday that had marzipan masks on them. So cute!
