She scrubs up well!

  1. Doing a grand job missus.
    I agree that it’s sad that it’s come to this but for years no-one has wanted to pay the levels of tax that would be needed to pay for all the things we expect to be provided by government. Yes, there are certainly ways they could use the money better but I think this event will hopefully make everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) think more carefully about who and what truly matters.
    Keep up the good work 👍

  2. You’re the only person I know of who can even approach that level of productivity.. Bet you didn’t know all those frenetic bouts of wildly imaginative costumes were training you for deadly dull production, did you? Try not to wear yourself out too much though..

  4. That’s a stunning output of nhs scrubs and in all the right colours. I’m awed by your productivity. Thank you so much for what you are doing, and so efficiently too.

    1. JUst doing what little I can. When you see how many are needed, and the absolute total gratitude of those getting them…it’s shameful what’s going on, and now they’re being forbidden to speak out publicly. Shameful!

  5. Must be crappy or high percentage cotton-poly mix? I learned the trick of pulling my uniforms out of the dryer when slightly damp so I could avoid ironing. Late to be asking this but why is there the need for volunteers to sew uniforms? Here in Canada there is much discussion about the need to get a sufficient and reliable supply of the PPE for doctors offices, community care homes and hospitals but not uniforms.

    1. yeah they need the PPE, but they don’t have enough scrubs either…and now we’re also being asked for masks, caps and gowns, and even the bags to wash them in as the hospitals simply don’t have enough AND can’t keep up with the laundering. We’re asked to make sure the fabric has a fairly high cotton content as it’s more comfortable to wear under all the layers of plastic bags and so on they’re using instead of PPE…it’s a bloody disgrace, and a quite deliberate choice made by these money-grubbing bastards in power. Siuckening

      1. Thanks for explaining. Here hospitals only launder uniforms for staff that get uniforms provided at the hospital which is limited to people that work in ICU/ special procedures. Totally get the comfort thing- I remember from SARS it only took a few minutes to get sweaty from all the layers of PPE we had to don when caring for someone on isolation precautions. I can’t watch much news after being at work all day and dealing either directly or indirectly with COVID.

  6. It’s so interesting to learn of each areas shortages; the shortages differ from place to place.
    I made 30 masks the other day for Covid-19 positive patients to wear when being transferred to rehab, so the PPE could be reserved for staff. The next day I did nothing in the sewing room as I was tapped out. I’m so impressed that you keep on sewing, every day, making those uniforms. You Go Girl!

    1. lol I’m coughing up lumps of fluff from the overlocker and keep burning my finger on the iron. Who said sewing is relaxing? These area shortages reflect [to my mind] the way all the hospitals got turned into profit making businesses [in the government’s mind at least] so even in our city, the hospitals are all acting alone, or in tiny ‘trusts’ of 2 or 3 centres, and they all have different rules. SOme will accept our makes, some won’t, some reprimand nurses wearing their own kit, others expect it…etc etc…chaos. It’s awful

  7. You’re amazing. NHS is so lucky to have you in their corner. Cannot believe how governments don’t make health (and eduction) their absolute top priority and fund it accordingly. I’d happily pay more tax for this.
    Also your garden is lovely.
