Still Making Masks

I don't even know how many masks I've made so far. First ones for my DIL'S hospital, then family and friends, then to sell on Etsy. My skills have improved. The bias ties take time. (They're cut on the straight of the grain, but I use a bias tape making device for these skinny things.) I ordered elastic a month ago, but it still hasn't arrived. Everyone wants elastic and it's sold out everywhere. My sister is a nurse and she insists that ties are more comfortable than elastic; I hope she's right. It gives an old fashioned M.A.S.H. vibe. I like this shirting, shown above. Light color for summer, and not too jarring with most outfits...considering that you're wearing a big mask. So, okay. Jarring.

After this mask phase, I'm really wanting to make a crumb quilt. Or two. :)

 Stay safe.

Making Face Masks

I started making face masks to donate to my daughter-in-law's hospital in New London, CT. Now making for friends and family. And just listed some on my Etsy shop and they're selling like hotcakes. If you have time, and a fabric stash (duh and duh!) consider selling some on Etsy.
This pretty fabric was designed by Jennifer Paganelli who lives in CT. I think it's a good choice for a mask because it's good quality fabric, and the color is like rosy cheeks.

A Chuckle For You

Heard some advice on the radio yesterday, it
said to have inner peace, that we should always
finish things we start, and we all could use more
calm in our lives. I looked through my house to
find things that I'd started and hadn't finished, so I
finished off a bottle of shiraz, a bottle of whisky, a
boddle of Baileys, a buttle of wum, tha mainder of
Valiumun srciptuns, an a box a choclitz. Yu haf
no idee how fablusly karm I fele rite now. Sned
htis to all who nede inner peas, an telum u luvum
an to bee hapee wile in de insulation.
