- Quilt Something!
Laundry Basket Mystery Quilt 2020. I was close to staying caught up, but 16 blocks on Saturday, and 4 on Sunday, blew that. I only have 1 of Saturdays because of a dilemma. I was short 4 squares for the HSTs I needed. So, does the bottom finished square bother you too much? The one above is not completed, I just set it up for comparison. I hope if I put the lighter color in the same spot it won’t be too glaring?
Quilting Gail is doing a Stay-At-Home Round Robin. You start with a block and add rounds to it as she gives clues. Here is my start, 1st round, and 2nd round.
Willow QAL with Gigi’s Thimble started the 26th!!!!
I still haven’t quilted anything!! Maybe this will see some quilting today or tomorrow. Although I have to drive my sister’s car and her dogs to Evansville tomorrow to reunite them. We’ve had the dogs for 2 weeks, it’s time for them to go home! Or at least, to my parent’s house. My sister is off work due to the virus and she is going to stay with my parents to make sure they don’t go out and about. They probably should have just stayed in Florida where they could walk on the beach. But then I would still have her dogs if she did that!!! I need my home and rhythm back.
Virus Rant, I am getting this off my chest, this is my rant, if you feel differently you can rant on your blog.
For all the talk about the deaths from the virus, let’s talk about the 9 suicides in Tennessee over the last 48 hours. There have only been 6 deaths in TN from COVID-19. It shouldn’t be hard to put into place a method of keeping hot spots under quarantine and letting those communities that are not under stress continue working and keeping their families going.
I think we all understand the need for safe precautions at this stage of the game, but this entire shutdown of every community isn’t healthy in a lot more ways. I fear that number I cited up there will increase as more people lose their only means of living and life becomes too stressful to take. Let’s not let the scary numbers coming out of New York cause us to shut down every community because of fear. Let local authorities make decisions based on their situations. A small county or city far flung from the hot spot shouldn’t have to react the same way as New York City. Where the populace is still congregating in large numbers in parks. Yet in my county we’ve had only 48 cases and 1 death and are not supposed to be within 6 feet of each other? I have a .03% chance of getting COVID-19. If I was still in Southern Indiana my chance would be .009% It’s insane!
