    The last while she has been wearing her glasses. She has been very careful about not touching her face at all. We worry about her as she is doing everything for all of us. I made her two more masks this morning.

    I’m making more masks this afternoon. One of DD’s friends is having chemo again and wants nice covers over her regulation masks. I’m making some for her DD’s also. They are being super careful at this time and I’m going to do my part for them. Doll clothes can come later.

    Ann, your DDIL should know that the virus can enter through the eyes. If you look at the protective gear the medical people use (if they have it) it includes some kind of visor or safety glasses. You shouldn’t wear contacts when you go out among people If you have an issue with one, you might touch your eye.

    I just looked and the pattern hasn’t been published. She put up the final copy but the thread hasn’t been removed. The weather is going to be nasty today and tomorrow so I hope to finish it over the next 2 afternoons.

    The contoured masks I made DDIL don’t fog her glasses when she moves at a normal pace. If she rushes and breathes heavily, her glasses do fog up. We aren’t going to worry about the wire in the nose as she said she just put her glasses on her head or can wear contacts.

    I bought a box of Zep industrial towels in case we need to make masks with filters. If it doesn’t get that far, I can use them for muslins for the dolls. Or to clean the house with.

    Pam, I got the email – all about bunnies….Nice idea!

    Looking forward to seeing your creations, Nicole and Ann!

    I had made about 20 of another design before they asked for these. Did she add wire to the nose? I think that’s essential. My BIL said his glasses fogged up. He made strips from aviation-grade aluminum to put in the slot, and that worked great for him. The hospital will be providing wire for theirs, though. I suspect this mask will be a bit too big for me, too. I have a small head.

    Yes, I received an email newsletter at the same tine as Andres did.
    I should finish tomorrow or the day after a knitted dress. I do not know yet who is going to wear it!

    I made DDIL two masks using the pattern you suggested Peggy. They were too big for her. She is going to launder them and give them to a friend. I made her two others that are contoured and she loves them. They fit her to perfection.

    If I get asked to make masks, I will be making them with cording which gathers the masks at the sides. I have some cording but need to source some more. I use it for making DD piping.

    The coat I was testing got published. I will finish mine and show you. It is a cute pattern.

    Andrea I need to put the sweater on the Gotz girls but have been focusing on the masks and test patterns. I’m also cleaning the house using a lot of bleach.

    Thanks, Peggy and Andrea! It seems to be just Pat and I!

    I received one, Pam. I thought Maxine was selling real babies for a second!

    Andrea, I wish I could give you some elastic. Our local hospital doesn’t want us to use elastic anymore.

    Back to mask making! I’ll try to pop in later with photos of Honor ready to leave on her trip to Wisconsin.
