Washington state is going through another severe shutdown period; I spoke with my sister this evening to compare notes on our respective community approaches. Down here in Texas it is the Wild West. I'm being very careful, not going out much at all. The growth is exponential now, just in time for a major U.S. indoor holiday.

I was motivated to update my long-neglected blog in order to share facemask information. I started by briefly summarizing the reason for eight years of neglect and created a separate page that I can update as needed that describes the styles of masks I make and how to care for them. I'll do another page to share current fabric offerings. Most of them now are 3D, it simply fits more people better than the other masks. My pleated masks cover everything but they can really take over your face. After a long time away from blogging (and various updates) I had to relearn a lot about the Wordpress blogs, including pulling up the now LinkedIn-owned Lynda.com training tutorials to get some tips (I love those tutorials, I've learned a lot of interesting stuff using them).

I've also edited the slip that is inserted with masks into each zip lock sandwich bag. It now includes a QR code to the blog entry describing mask fit and care and allows people to contact me if they want more.

Dorothy, it took time this morning to get over the dust assault from yesterday. I'm going to resume the work but with a mask in place. And I agree with you about the amount of work Charmion has done - and ending up with a music room and practice already is an excellent result. There are stages in the grieving process that are quite energized, by necessity. (Hugs, Charmion)

Stay safe, everyone. It's going to get worse before it gets better.
