Me again. I have two bags and a box ready to go to Goodwill after my first pass through the old garments (daughter's outgrown teen-years shirts, mostly) and school supplies in the craft room (was her bedroom). I think I have my sewing machine working - was it *really* so simple as turning the wheel the backwards way to pull the bobbin thread through the plate? I also found a long straight edge in there, intended to be used with the Olfa rotary cutter. A final gift from my Mom's stash?

I have a hair appointment on Friday, but upon looking up the COVID-19 test results and number of cases in this area, the numbers are still going up, so I shall pass, and try again next month. It's one thing to go to a doctor's office, it's another thing to go into a narrow rabbit-warren of a salon building, clear to the very back, and hope that every person who is in or who was in that building within the last few hours hasn't been breathing novel coronavirus particles into the air.

On a personal note: my new office glasses arrived, and I realized I picked the exact same frames for these that I have for my everyday glasses. I'll never be able to tell them apart, so I dabbed on a little nail polish on the inside of the bridge. Now to get the pads to the right point and then adjusted (since one ear is a little higher than the other).
