I just wanted to start and finish something, all in one sitting...so I did! This is a zipper pouch, and the pattern is free, and found here:
It makes a well finished pouch, and takes a bit more time to create, but I think it is worth it. I will give it to one of the nurses at work...in fact, the first one who says she likes it, shall have it!
I also made a few of these zipper key ring pouches, just right for a few coins or a credit card, to run to the grocery. If you would like one, please comment below, and I will have a drawing. If there are more than two...the others are already given away. So leave your comment!
I made some patient pillows today. These are 13 inches x 16 inches, and do very well to support a head, nodding to sleep in a chair, or sometimes a surgery wound brace. Our volunteers used to make them, but the lady who did most of the sewing is 95 years old, and since covid came along, she decided she was finished with that, and did not want to sew for the second half of her life. (Her words!)
I made a hat for a lady at work who wanted a blue one. Covid has us in the worst way at work...people text me all the time with the latest that is going on. And guess what? They are letting covid positive nurses take care of patients. I am livid about it...and will wear all the protection I can...stay out of the break room and take every precaution not to get sick or take it to my hubby. Not just our hospital, this is happening all over the country. We just do not have any nurses, so they are letting everyone just work...craziness! Time for the managers and educators and directors to come out of their safe offices and take care of covid patients!
AND THE MOST FUN THING OF ALL IS HAPPENING! I AM GETTING TO LEARN TO KNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Annie sent me these!! And more yarn, and needles. I am doing it! I know you all have heard me prattle on for years about learning to knit...well, here I go!!!!!!
