Instead of going birding with my friends today, I spent the day practicing social distancing. I listened to the latest updates of the Coronavirus. The city of San Antonio has been proactive and on target since the onset of this situation. I have confidence in our city leaders.
I checked in on the CDC website and found an image of the Coronavirus. I was struck by the color, design, and dimensions of the virus. In order for me to get a handle on how this situation makes me feel, I decided to embroider the image of the virus based on the photo from the CDC website. The site even has a download of a sticker or button of the virus image. I found the process of planning, embroidering and making a simple quilted block helped me to put things in perspective. Embroidery is very soothing for me. It also gave me the chance to practice making French Knots and Bullion stitches.
We will get through this.
