#covid19 -world problems: dry, raw, scaly skin on my wrists from so much handwashing πŸ’§πŸ§ΌπŸ¦

Eryk Salvaggio created a terribly creative #data “auralization” of the market v. #covid19 cases made up of overlapping musical tracks. It’s at first interesting, then emotional. I do and don’t want to “hear how it ends”

Been thinking a lot the last few days about how privileged my family is to be able to effectively shelter in place here in the suburbs, with most everything we need at hand. And I don’t expect even this to completely protect us. Thinking about those who don’t have physical, economic, societal access to safe environments. 😞 #covid19

“Who are you, who are so wise in the ways of fabric?” (not me really) #diy #covid19

Home Engineering

I’m no tailor, but I spent last night learning how to measure, cut, and yes, sew #diy face masks. We’re working from this series of videos on The Fabric Patch, a quilting site.

We acquired cotton fabric and some featherweight non-woven fabric (Pellon) from Joanne’s before the stay-at-home order came out in Arizona yesterday, so we’re working with that. I’m able to sew a straight stitch well enough, but struggling some with getting the fits right on family members, and we’re still experimenting with nosepieces (pipe cleaners are too soft, some 20g electrical wire might work)

I have always had huge respect for those who were wise in the ways of fabric, even more so now.

#COVID

Here in the US, the folks to suffer the soonest and most will be the poor, minorities, the homeless… those in most need of the #socialsupport programs our current government earnestly works to destroy.

#COVID #privilege

I’m trying to keep my social media exposure down because it’s just adding to my stress, but this is my regular reminder that I am extraordinarily privileged to be currently riding things out while working from home.

Things will get worse, but right now there are SO MANY folks already suffering and I realize that.
