It’s time for an update. I just realized I have not kept up with my regular posts during social distancing and sheltering in place over the past week.
I have kept busy all this time with staying in touch with friends, leading an online Miksang meeting via Zoom last Saturday (which required some preparations), writing the course outline for the upcoming Miksang weekend course in early May as well as preparing detailed handouts for that. And then it was time tp prepared a month’s worth of meals for puppy Ash. This is always a busy couple of hours with grinding the proper proportions of meat, bone and offal together. We measure each meal and package them before freezing. We managed to produce enough for 48 days.
Back in the studio I started on another art quilt in the series of “Building Bridges“ and last night, as the Pink Moon rose over the still frozen lake… I succumbed… and sewed some masks. Yes, only a day earlier I stated I would not spend the time to make any masks… but then the new recommendations by Dr. Theresa Tam were released and I changed my mind.
Three hours of cutting and sewing (and completely depleting my elastic stash) while listening to a couple excellent and informative medical podcasts with Dr. Paul Saladino yielded 11 fabric masks. Colin and I will keep those in the picture below and the other four are going to two non-sewing friends.
Hope everyone is doing well and keeping mind and body occupied. Take care! I promise to post again soon.
