What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Men's size is what fits me too. I changed them, though, to put shoestrings along the top and bottom instead of loops of elastic, which hurt my ears. A coworker figured out another trick, tho, if you have these type--paperclips! Put a paperclip through each loop and hook them together. You can put it above your ears or down like a necklace, she said, and it keeps your glasses from falling and the mask from bugging your ears. :D Win! All my coworkers want me to make them one, but I don't have time to mass produce. There is one coworker, though, who has really taken care of me quite often (and even made a dinner just for me and brought in on her day off one day, just cause I said I was craving it!). I will make her one Monday...I am certain I couldn't make them for all that work there! It's a big facility, and even my small section (5 units) has about 75 per day working (nursing staff, which includes aides) if we were fully staffed (Bwhahah!)


Your masks are gorgeous!

This is the penultimate .... unless I decide i want to make it larger,  in which case, more blocks will be needed.  Decisions, decisions.




How wide is the elastic you are using, and how long are you making the elastic pieces?

Such happy quilts. Beautiful job.

Cathy I like Yours with the shoestring ties, The ones I have been making have that elastic strings. and yes they do hurt the ears. i would like to try some, what would be the length of ties? Pat Beal

Pat, I try to make the ties about 19”.  Some are shorter, but I aim for 19”.

ittakes longer to make these, but I did t have elastic.

i did find some bpughten bias tape that I stitched and used those.  

Well, darn! I obviously can't count. I thought I'd done the math with these mini-9s I found, but I guess not. I'm going to have to make about as many more...<groan> LOL!!!

I'm good.  Behaving for the most part and "still" working on those darn triangles.  I've emptied one shoe box Bin, almost half way through the smaller plastic drawer and trying to think if I hid them any where else.. 

How are you doing?  Has Spring started to somewhat arrive and get things thawed out?  I need to get in here more often and check the LIVE chat.  Has it been doing well?  I sure hope so, although I haven't contributed as I should.

Been looking on pinterest at HST quilts. There are tons of beautiful ones.  Thought about starting at one corner and just adding to the project as I go along.  Time will tell.  Thursday I plan on working on th 2018 Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt.  I need to get the next set of blocks sewn together.  Once that is finished I can move to the 2019 Frolic one.  LOL 

I have her My Blue Heaven pattern, which I call My Christmas Heaven basically done except I decided to add the border to make it larger.  Backing is already chosen and ready to go.  I'm trying to focus on the UFO's in my life for the time being.  Been at this UFO thing for two years now.  I'm a topper at heart, I wish the Quilting Fairy would just come at night and quilt the darn things:  we'd all be happy.  

Behave yourself....
