A Squirrel or Two

 I have gotten a few things done this month, including a quilt I planned to bind. And then there were the things that popped up.

The kit for Oscar arrived and was just begging to be knit, so I dropped everything and made an Oscar hat. It is going to a fundraiser coming soon.

Then I was told that my favourite little boy didn't have enough masks for school. So, of course, Nana had to drop everything and make 10 more masks.

I despair of every being free of mask making, however, his teacher said that they must be good masks because he doesn't try to take it off in class, like some do. Oddly, after being told it was an emergency, they are still at my house. Does it count as a Squirrel if it's a request from a dear one?

Meanwhile in my WIPs Be Gone, I made a back and binding for a quilt that I started a long time ago.

I remember trying very hard to make sure that the same fabric wasn't touching and I see that I failed. Oh, well, it will be done and the new owner will love it.

I also pulled out this UFO from the start of the pandemic.

I think I decided that the zipper was a bit wonky, but I think I'll leave it wonky. It can be a design feature, right?

I am going to link up with Sandra for her DrEAMi #58 linkup.


  1. I won't tell anyone about the wonky zipper if you don't.

  2. I LOVE LOVE the Elmo hat!!! But wait, isn't Elmo red? I'm not up on my Sesame Street peeps anymore, sadly. I can see why you'd DrEAMi! It's still a squirrel if it's a request from a loved one, so the masks are another squirrel. :-)

  3. Cute red and grey quilt!!! No one else will notice the same fabrics touching. I have 10 masks to make here, too. I keep hoping mask making would be done...
