Team: Running with Scissors
Project Name: More masks for a coworker
Project Link: -0-
Brief Description: I made a couple masks for a co-worker and he asked for a couple more so he didn’t have to wash the three he had so often. Has anyone else been asked to make masks and then have the person tell you something about their wife or mom or someone else close to them sewing? Happens to me ALL the time. Grrr. Anyways, masks are useful everywhere now.
