So, how are you doing? I hope you are well and hanging in there. I hope you have a fair share of food, drink, and paper products. I hope you are getting enough exercise, fresh air, and emotional support. But mostly, I hope this cray-cray time ends as quickly as possible. Weeks into this mess, I now realize the need to step outside for little breaks to rejuvenate. I read somewhere that when “…planning for distance learning, teachers need to cut their plans in half; then in half again.” Thankfully, I have a great Admin who understands and promotes this.
I decided to QAYG (first timer) my Scrap Happy quilt. So far I’ve sewn twelve 18″ (45cm) blocks. I’ve made a few mistakes and I wish I used a softer color backing; but, it’s all good. However, this project is side-lined as I construct face covers.
I am making face covers for my at risk family members. Something is better than nothing, right? My nieces requested “kitties.” My sister asked if she should order fabric and I replied, “Nooo! Scraps I have!” 😉 I used a never-worn T-shirt as “elastic.” I had to laugh when my mom asked, “Isn’t that the shirt I gave you?” Why, yes it is. 😀
