Catherine Whall Smith . . . is stitching up more masks to get ready to get out of LOCK DOWN!

This Friday, I am sharing something on the lighter side from ~ Bear Creek Quilting Co.

“I hear some people are starting to feel stressed in lockdown! I was just talking about this with my sewing machine, and she seamed to agree. But when I asked the elastic, it just snapped back! I think it was stretched to its limit. So I tried to talk to the cotton, but it shrank away. The linen was in a bunch. The scissors were snippy. Even the stuffing was down. When I came around to ask the buttons, they just gaped.

The snaps suggested I get a grip. Thankfully, the iron gave it to me straight and reminded me this will all be smoothed over soon.”

Design Wall UP-DATE: “Barriers”


If you’re wondering whether to wear or not to wear a mask, consider this. Recently, 21 people died of COVID-19 in Japan. In the United States, 2,129 died. Comparing overall death rates for the two countries offers an even starker point of comparison with total U.S. deaths now at a staggering 76,032 and Japan’s fatalities at 577. Japan’s population is about 38% of the U.S., but even adjusting for population, the Japanese death rate is a mere 2% of America’s.

            “Sew” wear your mask as you plan for the future after lock down.
