Hello my friends!
What a very long time it has been.
In that time so much has happened, I can't even begin.
One of the worst was losing someone very close to me during this
first part of the pandemic.
It was such a shock and I still don't believe it has happened.
Not being able to attend a funeral (only virtually) just makes it
all feel like a dream.
I also know so many people that have suffered terrible, terrible things
whether it be related to the pandemic or otherwise.
Have there been any silver linings then?
Well I have been desperately trying to keep
busy and my business has been chugging along nicely.
During lockdown I decided to make some Liberty print masks using
a 3D pattern. I started to make them for family and friends as little unexpected
surprises that they would receive.
Then it all went crazy, and then friends of friends, of
friends wanted to know how they could buy them.
And so an addition was born.
But here is why I made them:
* the disposable mask were damaging my skin. I have never suffered with
skin breakouts even in my teens, and here I was suffering with it now.
* the black masks, along with my black hair made me look like I
about to commit some terrible crime.
*I could never talk with the disposable masks on; they would either start to slip
down my face and try to strangle me, or I just found it impossible to breathe.
So a new idea was born.
So why Liberty fabric?
with Liberty London.
Both my Mum and Godmother were Buyers for Liberty in the 70's and 80's.
So whenever I have to choose fabric for anything, Liberty is my first choice.
The quality is fabulous.
So why do I feel my masks stack up against the others?
*these are made in authentic Liberty London 100% cotton.
