Yes - for a while the world will revolve on the homemade bias tape holding on face masks. I have made wide tape for big projects; making it narrower means you get more length for the amount of fabric that is used for it, but I totally agree, it is time-consuming. I don't have any of those bias tape tool things that you pull it through and iron it, but I have an antique sewing machine with a bias tape foot that will serve me well. (Any sewing related stuff on Amazon is all sold out until May; we have to be resourceful and use skills learned a very long time ago.) And what is so remarkable, all of a sudden that stash is not being laughed about as the frivolous hoarding of home-sewers.

We've lived under a literal cloud since early last week, and while the next couple of days are supposed to be warmer they're still overcast, then we get more rain end of the week. I do wish it would pace itself. Now that I'm more active I'd like to walk the dogs, but not when it's cold and blustery.

Baking again tomorrow; it seems the dinner rolls are a real hit, so the proposed cinnamon rolls will wait for another day. I've taken them hot out of the oven with tongs, used gloves and bags out of the box to hold them then delivered next door and across the street. I wouldn't try it with anything that wasn't just cooked and delivered immediately. Next door offered chicken salad, but there is too much chance that could pick up something if they've been exposed. What a life we live these days.

Stay healthy everyone. And Dorothy, I hope R is being careful if he's going about any of his regular business.

Susan, if you're reading along, I hope you're in a safe place. We're still thinking of you.
