MORE masks!!

I have been busy making masks as there’s always someone or someplace asking for them.  Here’s a group of 13 with many more to be made.  I’ve already made 25 for a small hospice/home health center and gave 5 to my friend who has a sister on dialysis & wanted a mask but the dialysis center said no (maybe they didn’t have any to spare).  We have a state school/living center for mentally challenged adults that have experienced a virus outbreak.  They’ve asked for 150 so our little group (and hopefully others) are working on those.  A friend, fellow blogger and RN has asked for some so I’ll get her taken care of.
Hopefully this will be behind us sooner rather than later,

Woohoo, Jamestown!!

Part of it is off the wall and together!!  So excited but already thinking if I want a piano key border like Bonnie did or something else.  Must ponder that... 🙃


I have been sewing masks for a small group of hospice/home health care providers who requested we make 100.  There were 4 or 5 of us sewing and we hit the mark yesterday (after just 3 or 4 days!).

The gal who collected them took them all home, washed them and plopped them on her table for a picture!  HA  A nice batch of colorful masks that will be used and appreciated.  I plan on making more but really want to start on assembling Jamestown--she's been waiting too long!

Small finishes

The QOV I showed last has been finished (as a top anyway), the backing has been made and now I need to get it to the longarmers.  Now I need to get back to Jamestown and get that wrapped up.  But I did get a couple of baby rag quilts finished

and today will be working on some masks like Bonnie posted on her blog yesterday.  A lady on Nextdoor posted that her hospice/home health group had been unable to find masks for their health care workers and was asking for some help.  Someone had posted the same link as Bonnie and she said they would LOVE some so at last count there were 3 of us volunteering to make masks for them.  The leftovers from the rag quilts (flannel) will be put to good use!

I see the light

at the end of the tunnel that is!  This QOV is all stitched together needing another press and one border and it will be ready for the longarmer.  YAY!  I think it will get done in time.  Just takes a bit of focus to get to the finish line.

oh NO!!

😧😧  I canNOT believe I've uncovered yet another UFO and I wasn't even looking.  And what's REALLY bad is I don't remember this one (although there have been a few I didn't recall).  But this one I LOVE and want to finish it NOW!  Unfortunately, there are a few others in the queue that need to be done first.  

There's a bag in the bag that has pieces and parts so not sure at the moment how much bigger than this it will get but it don't matter!  However big it winds up, I'll love it and I'll have another blue and neutral to go with the Jamestown that'll be done before this one.  It's absurd that I don't remember it.  😧😧

Clickin' along

I have 16 of 30 blocks done so over half (if only just barely)!  I really would love to get this one done in the next week-ish so it can go for quilting and then soon after get completely finished!!  Is that too much to hope for?  Probably.....

I seriously do want to get this one wrapped up so that I can get the last blocks done for Jamestown!!
