Sapphire Grows

I made myself a mask and went to the grocery store yesterday morning. Grocery shopping is now a solemn affair. The mood is completely different. There are lines taped on the floor in the checkout aisles, to show how far away you should stand. There are plexiglass barriers between you and the cashier and you aren't the only shopper wearing a mask and gloves.

I'm working on the Sapphire quilt. I'm working one fabric pair at a time, so it is slow going, but I am pretty happy with the colors. The vertical pairs indicate where the fabrics are going.

Here's a closeup of the fabrics. I sent a picture of this to my brother (who's currently in Nevada).

"Damn, Lynne.  F***kin A!"

I say anything that gets an "A" is beat right now, and I agree with him totally, Supermarkets locally, wait outside, 4 people in at a time, only one in each aisle, when one goes out the next in queue can go in.Lines, limits on numbers of items, we are in total lockdown , only essential services open, now we can order whiteware and IT items online, delivery only, non in-store at all, and contactless delivery. This includes heaters, blankets, fridges, laptops, iPads and similar. Our doctor's visit for the flu vaccination will be different, think we wait in the car and get it done through the open window. love those teals, superb.

That color combination is magnificent. When I went to the grocery store last week, it looked completely business as usual, which was scary to me. It didn't look cleaner and there was no guard. I do hope that by now they have made more of an effort.

I read about a company somewhere that was paying their people quite a bit extra to work from home to cover office supplies. So you shouldn't feel badly about taking what you would be using if you were there anyway.

The alternative is to buy your own stuff, do things on your own time, and wind up feeling unappreciated when nobody notices. Been there.
