Shadows and light

On Dog Walk #1, I listened to The Daily podcast and heard about the proper, sensible approach to the pandemic: the Hammer and the Dance. The Hammer is the lock down. The Dance is the gradual opening in controlled ways.

Discouraging in and of itself and also discouraging in that a sensible approach isn’t possible with this president.

And then there’s the ongoing federal heists of PPE taking place on tarmacs. These thefts have been called ‘mafia style politics’ and compared to Soviet-style corruption It’s way worse than the federal government leaving the states on their own and not helping. It’s way worse than price gouging and outbidding the states. It’s out and out theft of supplies that the states have sourced and paid for.

This article makes me think we need a word beyond “OUTRAGEOUS:” New York Magazine.

On lighter notes:

I’ll be posting another Pantry Soup tomorrow. Also, I determined that a huge piece of lavender linen that my cousin, Ginny Mallon, sent me will make a fine robe. To follow along with Jude.

And finally, I finished all 55 masks that I’d committed to making. Plus three for next door neighbors totaling 58.

    How I love windows lit from the inside. The article…how about CRIMINAL.
    Lavender is lovely. Pull some red thread for life blood and remember, everything has an ending and nothing escapes mortality. Love you.

    love those two mugging in their masks …

    and I’m thinking that lavender would look amazing with indigo …

    couldn’t bring myself to read the article, quite honestly … I just thank god there are journalists who are documenting the rot … as usual, the Dems will have to come in and clean up the mess that the GOP has made … again

      I rejected the linen this morning but am back to considering it this afternoon. Sometimes I make my own head spin!

    congratulation! 58 I’m blown away
    working with lavender linen will be a dream…those two top reflections are stunning, and the masked youths had me grinning; I’ve nothing to add covid19-wise as it’s just too overwhelming these days

      Well I stitched the little house and even places where there were two layers of cloth and batting, it was easeful. That is Son #1 on the right.

    Yay! Linen! I am excited to see where your lavender linen takes you. Good work on the masks.

      It’s soft and beautiful. My writing group tells me I won’t stop talking about a Fabric’s drape. This has a beautiful drape.
