Late with Some of This; Some of That

Destashing is going slow this year, but I did pull out a yard ( 10.00 yds is my new YTD ) to make 5 masks - I know that is pitiful compared to others, but I'm persisting. Here is the type I like to make. I find they go faster than making the ones with pleats.  It's the ties that make it so.
I've made 30 total now.  Just finished one for my neighbor as he is going golfing tomorrow and doesn't find the N-95 comfortable.  So many are saying they can't breathe with these home made masks.  What do you recommend for the second layer to make them more breathable?

Oh and I made some more 6 1/2" blocks for my Scrap Snapper quilt.  That's another 0.14 yd of scraps sewn into blocks.  So really that YTD total is 10.14 yds.  This is what they look like.  I've decided I'm going to make a baby quilt and stop at 38 blocks. But I probably will keep making these Scrap Snapper blocks. My problem with scraps is when I don't have a plan, it takes me forever to decide what to sew to what. Kari gives you a plan and her instructions for the 10 blocks are great. If you'd like to learn about them go here.
Not the best photo, but it gives you an idea of what it's like.
Nothing on my Design Wall right now.  I'm still quilting that UFO and binding my No Greater Love.
I must confess I have gotten distracted by a new puzzle, and it is hard! Hubby and I are trying to get to bed earlier now that the mornings come sooner.  It is so nice to work in the morning.  We're aiming for 9:30 PM as night-night, but here it is 9:36 and I'm working on a post.  So you see how that is going.  At least I've done the kitchen already.  Linking to Design Wall Monday

Have a great week and stay safe. Blessings to all.


  1. Nice looking mask. I made it to bed by 2:30 am😀😀😀 Mick works puzzles all the time. He decided to wait a little longer to golf.

  2. Your masks look really professional! Do you have a link for that pattern? I've made a few of the pleated ones just for ourselves because it just made me so sad to be sewing any at all. But one of these days I know I'll get a second wind and want to make more. Meanwhile, I really like that Scrap Snapper! Thanks for the link; I'll go check it out :)

  3. Thanks for linking up with Design Wall Monday - I like your mask with butterflies. Very pretty, if a mask can be pretty. Stay safe, Judy


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.
