Recently, another quilter that I know (not a close friend) asked if I had made masks. Then she asked how many I had made, and proceeded to tell me how many she had made. I didn't know it was a competition.
I have made masks for friends and family. I have even donated some to a charity that supports homeless youth.
This one is mine. Since I mostly stay home, I only need one.
I don't enjoy making masks. I find them boring, kind of like mending. There is little creative potential. I find that they have taken a lot of time away from my more artistic endeavors. I found myself doing other stuff (also not creative) to avoid making masks.
So, for now, I am done making masks. I have put away my box with the patterns and supplies. I am going to do something more fun. I am calling it self-care.
I saw a project earlier this week that I wanted to try. I ordered fabric for it on Wednesday, and it arrived yesterday. Thank you, Funky Monkey Fabrics, for the great service. I can't get groceries that fast!
It is washed, and laying on the ironing board. The pattern is printed. Lets see if I can get this done quickly. It is going to be fun, and funky, and yes, those are bananas on the fabric.
In the evenings, I am knitting baby things. I know two babies that are on the way, in the fall, so they will need to kept warm.
I am making a Baby Vertebrae Sweater in DK yarn this time. I found it in my stash and wanted to use it.
