04.03.20 Journal

How are you feeling about wearing face masks when in public?  It seems like a really good and pretty easy way to keep germs from floating around the air we all share.  It also feels a little weird when you are the only one in the grocery store sporting the crunchy white kind with built in pigsnout.  

That actually reminds me of a woman named Diana who worked in my production studio back in the early 2000s.  She wore a mask as she sat at the sewing machine constructing blankets from used sweaters cut to shape.  Her desire was to keep wool dust out of her unusually sensitive nose, throat and lungs. Diana was one of those people who could crack you up without even realizing she was funny.  When she first put the mask on, she drew a pig nose on the plastic valve that resembled that sort of snout.

Whenever I looked at her or she at me, we would just bust agut laughing.  She was dumbfounded whenthe police hauled her live-in partner who had a large-scale pot growing concernin their barn off to jail.  She has noidea.  Funny!

Here we are nearly 20 years later, pot is legal here in Massachusetts AND I am working on channeling Diana with her sense of humor and self-care that we could all use a double dose of these days.  

While wool dust doesn’t bother me when I am busting out awesome blankets from reycycled wool and cashmere sweaters, it IS time for us all to wear masks.  These very simple tools are available to us and the fact that few are using them as habit makes me a little cray cray.  Once my elastic order arrives, I’ll be offering a free mask making tutorial on my Live at 11am EST on Facebook so you can make one too. 

When you order from my shop a free handmade mask will be included in your shipment until supplies run out.  I’ll reserve a handful for my dear cousins in NYC.  AND while I am committed to wearing masks in public, my daughters have been promised that there will be no pig noses involved.
