I was supposed to go up to Toowoomba for the weekend and to a meeting at the Guild, but I think it is safer to stay where I am. A couple of residents of the island work on the movie set down on the Gold Coast. I doubt they have had contact with Tom Hanks and his wife, but I think it better to just stay around home. And then my daughter-in-law had to be tested as she had been in contact with some Asian students who had been in contact with other people who tested positive so they went into isolation. Luckily for her the test came back negative. But the knowledge of those who have the virus is moving closer to people we know.
When I do go off the island I am going to take the barge, even if I have to brave the elements. At the moment those elements are looking like a cyclone just off the coast. We are expecting 50 knot winds today. But the ferry is nearly always crowded, especially in the morning and afternoons. I am going to have to go and get food, although toilet paper is good at the moment. What I haven't been able to buy is antiseptic, might have to make my own.
This is a good chance to iron all the fabric in my stash. That's a job I have been putting off for years. I really need to sort those fabrics and I can 'pet them' at the same time. Now, not ALL these draws are fabric, five hold finished work and other stuff, but the rest is fabric.
And this chest of draws isn't all fabric.
Just most of it.
I have a lot of ironing ahead of me.
Also time to stitch a sample for the next Children's Class. That isn't till June/July so hopefully all this madness will have passed. I am in the process of drawing sea gulls for this task. But I need to simplify the drawings so that the kids can stitch them. I always start with things that are too complicated. Why can't I just make it simple?
