Gratitude Spiral: Day 254

Today, I’m grateful for finding a mask pattern that fits my face.

When talk of wearing face coverings to slow the spread of Covid-19 began, I tried my hand (& sewing machine) at making masks. Success is a relative term. I’ve got plenty of fabric, but had no elastic, so I made masks with pleats and ties. Each one came out a bit different. I gave a few away to family members, but there was no mass production going on in my house. The pleats and the ties were a challenge for my machine. Then, I inherited some elastic from my mother. Still, making a well-fitting mask was a challenge. Then, I found a pattern that didn’t require pleats. Turned out to be a perfect fit for my face and my capabilities. 🙂

What are you grateful for today?
