Hi, everyone! Thank you all for your well wishes last week.
My husband, two school-age sons, and I are doing well here in Massachusetts, on the East Coast of the United States. We’re healthy and riding out this quarantine as best we can. I am a mom full-time, and my husband is able to work from home without a problem. He foresaw that the United States would be quarantining. As a result, he had me stock up the basement freezer and overflow pantry, and wrap up some house projects weeks ago. We’ve been in good shape with supplies.
My husband’s hobby is emergency medical services, which he has been involved with since we met 25 years ago, and he takes an ambulance shift two nights every week. He’s my family’s biggest threat to acquiring the novel Coronavirus. As the resident asthmatic, I am the family member most likely to experience complications should I become infected. We’re trying our best to be smart and stay safe.
Of course, the creature who is fully in favor of this quarantine is the dog. Rose loves when the pack is all together! She managed to mangle one of her claws right before the quarantine went into effect. (She’s just fine now.) I present to you Rose at her most pathetic ...
A note on the pictures peppered throughout this post: I have been doing a lot of cutting and piecing since we’ve been stuck at home. Here is my first flimsy finish! It’s Kate Spain’s Chalet pattern made with Juniper Berry, by Basic Grey. I have already declared 2020 the Year of the Christmas Quilt. I have five Christmas quilts in the works, and at least two or three will be staying at my house. : )
Stay good and healthy, friends. Sending my love to you all!
