Abruptly Changing Direction

I have a friend whose daughter is a nurse working on a Covid-19 unit here in Boston. There is nowhere near enough protective gear for these workers and she asked people to make scrub caps for the nurses on her unit. Now it’s personal! I cleared all the babies-in-waiting (to be finished) from my worktable, downloaded the pattern, and that is what I’ll be focusing on this week.

Here I am, trying on my test model.

And here is 7 more, finished today. Plus another 20 cut out. I will be interested to see how many I can get done tomorrow.

I recently heard something along the lines of “action soothes anxiety” and I can tell you that having a positive helpful project to work on has made me feel SO much better. After these are done I will work on face masks for the people in my life. I am not sure how long it will be before I get back to dolls but at least a week. See you back here soon!

  1. Mimi, it is crazy that it has come to this. I have been making masks and wanted to know if the Boston COVID unit needs more scrub caps than you can sew. If so let me know and I will start cranking them out.
