How are you all doing with this very weird time we are going through? I’d love to say that I have been sewing up a storm but alas, I have had a hard time keeping motivated. Not that I haven’t been doing any sewing. I have been working on my log cabin quilt, made some face masks just in case hubby or I get a cold (the masks are not effective for the Covid-19 virus) and want to keep from coughing near each other , and I also have my hand sewing for the evenings.
I have made pretty good progress on the quilt. I only have 3 more rows to add. Yay, the end is in sight. Well, hold everything. Just to add to the craziness of the times, the machine I was using to do the decorative stitch on the “in-between” rows decided it wanted to start acting up. I spent over an hour on it and twice I thought I had fixed the issue but nope, just a short line of stitching and back the issue came. So, to keep my sanity, I just shut it off and walked away. To borrow a line from Scarlett O’Hara, “Tomorrow is another day”. And I’ll be here. I can use my Brother machine to complete the quilt since it is both an embroidery and sewing machine. I will just have to take the embroidery unit off and set it up as a regular sewing machine. At this time, I will not be taking a trip to the repair shop. If hubby and I can’t get it fixed, it will just wait until things settle down and I’ll use my other machines.
I have been reading a lot. I am on book #5. The other night, because I didn’t want to hear anymore about the corona virus, we decided to watch a movie instead of regular tv. We chose The Two Popes on Netflix. It was a very interesting movie. I have also been re-watching all the seasons of Call the Midwife because the new season will be playing on PBS soon. And Emma is available On Demand now so I might talk hubby into watching that with me this weekend.
Weekends. I remember when weekends were different than the rest of the week. I teased my non-retired friends by responding with “What’s a week end? to them when they spoke of what they did on their weekends. Well, now that I don’t have to be anywhere on any day at any particular time, I truly don’t know the difference between days. I really have to think about what day it is when waking up. I differentiate the days by what programs are on HGTV that night.
And one more note….. I miss baseball. This was supposed to be Opening week.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. How have you all be doing? Getting used to the social distancing? How are you keeping yourselves busy, entertained and productive?
I hope you are all feeling well. Take care. Stay home.
Bye for now. See you soon.
