  1. You are a complete hero Fairy! I can’t imagine seeing even one set never mind 11. Great to see the wild garlic – we have some too. But we gathered lots on our walk and have made pesto, and also incorporated some into homemade pasta which got filled with butternut squash. Sending love to you both at this heartbreaking time.

  2. You are a trooper for doing this production sewing. From years of making my own uniforms, it was never easy finding solid colour cotton/polyester fabric in the right weight and colour I liked. Thank you for showing your garden. Won’t see that kind of greenery in my area for at least another month. At least the grass is getting green here.

    1. THe fabric is getting bought up by everyone all over the country lol I’ve got very little blue, mostly using burgundy, dark purple and bottle green. Most hospitals have had to throw usual uniform regulations to the winds! Some sellers are being unscrupulous though, upping prices, lying about weight…and yesterday, I re-measured one entire delivery [4 lengths totalling 54m] to find I was 15m short! They are on my shit list now. The garden is a constant pleasure- so lucky to have something so lovely to look out at every day.

  3. I’ve been making the laundry bags and scrub hats required until I get the word back on scrubs from the volunteer coordinator my friend is working with. If I hear nothing I’ll have a word with you. Well done, and keep it up Fairy 😘

  4. I want to help, but what we need is a list of contacts ie nurses care workers etc that we can supply directly with what they require rather than dealing with middle men asking for volunteers. Is anyone aware of any such direct requests that can be accessed.

    1. well the hospitals etc have actually asked that individuals NOT contact them as it’s too much distraction. Join ‘for the love of scrubs’ get directed to a local subgroup and admin, and it goes quite smoothly, as they also have to check [or SHOULD] that the hospital trust’s rules ALLOW them to accept donations. eg theatre staff generally cannot, spec is quite specific

  5. Check out these videos for some production tips if you’re going to do more miles of ties https://fashion-incubator.com/4-mask-sewing-tutorials-more-efficiency-less-pain/
    I personally can’t even do more than 2 masks at a time without wanting to howl out the window, so I can’t imagine 11 of anything 😮. But let me also point out that matching tie or thread color is probably beyond what’s needed now, and even that not doing it could introduce a bit of fun for both you and the recipients?

    1. I never fuss too much about perfect thread matching and the overlocker usually has four different vaguely appropriate colours in it [currently 2 shades of blue, black and purple I think] I’ll only be making ties if I can’t get any cotton tape at all…I’ve just timed myself today, and if not batch sewing [which will be quicker, but more boring] |I can do a top in 50 minutes, trousers in 40. And that’s with proper double stitched seams for strength, no shortcut overlocking cos It won’t be strong enough on woven!
