Back to Bargello: Here yet not really here.

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with this piece. It was much more fun in my imagination than it is for me in reality. I don’t know if it’s the colors, the beading, the distractions of all the other things I’m required, and need to do these days….. I find myself avoiding it. Yesterday, […]

I’m pleased to have delivered 20 masks to the Assistance League who will make sure they do some good. I’m still working on nine more for our local Kirkland Air Force Base. That will use up my remaining elastic. I’ve ordered more, but it will take a couple of weeks. I took a break from […]

Two more to go for 20!

I’ve figured out a quick and easy pattern for DIY masks. I will make two more to complete my quota of twenty for our local Children Youth and Family Department. A volunteer from the Assistance League will come to collect them this Wednesday. In the meantime, I’ll keep making them to give to neighbors and […]
