My DIL's mum in the US has made 23 facemasks in the last week to help people fight the coronavirus. She messaged me last night to ask if I would like her to send us one each. How lovely is that? I declined as I know I could easily make one. If I can do curtains I must be able to do face masks. She sent me the pattern that she is using. If anyone is interested I will try and upload it here.
That's a good idea. I've been saying to OH that I felt face masks were important. The news said there is no proof that they offer any protection, then changed their mind saying that countries who use them have had less infections. Great idea to make some LL, any protection is better than none.
I went to the store yesterday with OH, hate going there because of the enclosed space and people breathing in it. It is now said that droplets can travel 8 metres in a cloud of gas from breath, so glad I had my mask on.
This is my mask, at least it made my fellow shoppers smile.
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
