April 2020 Crafty Weasel Update

Well, as we all know, things have been a bit stalled with the Crafty Weasels since we can’t meet here in GA, and the Senior Living Center is definitely on lockdown.

When we left at the end of sewing day on March 7th, we didn’t know what the future held for the Crafty Weasels because of the COVID-19.  Margaret took the two unfinished bags of bedding home with her with the the ribbon box (which she generally holds for us).  We just met (were careful to social distance) so that we could help a rehab place get enough masks for their personnel to use.  She dropped off the CW bags and told me that she has completed everything.
I just now had a chance to get in and was totally overwhelmed by all the finished ferret bedding.  She even color coordinated all the final thread stitching (Dawn would totally approve!!!), and all the ribbons.
Here is the list:
4 – Wonton Flowers
15 – Sleepsacks
14 – Hammies
4 – Inside/Outside Sleepsacks
6 – Barrels
10 – PennyButton Hammies
The good news is we haven’t missed sending boxes out since this all started, and with what Margaret completed above, I’ll be able to get another box out for May (and probably June too).
I’m proud to say that I’ve seen FB posting of past CW members making masks and helping out during this “stay at home” time.  This shirt has been posted, and honestly I felt it truly fit our group well!!  Hoping maybe there will be a good side to this virus that it brings people back to wanting/enjoying how to sew.
I hope you are all staying well, healthy, and keep connected with each other.  We are a strong group, and will continue to be again in the future.
