Back in Business

Yesterday I was pretty anxious about creating the last set of masks I had on order for some neighbors that I woke up at 3:30 in the morning, unable to fall back asleep. I laid in bed for 90 minutes before finally getting up. When I finally sat down to sew the last couple of masks, I got about 1/3 of the way through one and my sewing machine gave up the ghost. Maybe I was tired, maybe I was stressed an anxious about making them… I started crying.

Thankfully, our local sewing machine repairs Elna’s and I was able to take it in today. Turns out it just needs servicing (yes, I was pushing it to its limits) and while I was there, the rep easily talked me into a new Baby Lock. I CAN’T wait to try it out! And just like that, we’re back in mask making business. Phew!

Meanwhile, things seem to be tapering a bit with our Covid cases. Is it a true flattening of the curve or false hope?
