Third-Way Through Summer

I find it hard to believe that only one month of summer has passed; it seems that it started months ago ... schools have been out since mid-March ... all of Spring. Not to diminish the hard work that teachers and students did during those Spring months ... working from home via Zoom meetings and the like. I am not sure I would have succeeded at that type of teaching... my episode of working on a new computer platform to complete my taxes was humbling enough!

During the Spring my mask making improved gradually, but this past week I've begun using a different pattern, so my speed is back to the beginning ... but I will work on it each day and eventually have enough to share with the team of sewists in North Andover and Andover who are making these for special education teachers.

If you would like to try this pattern, you'll find it on You Tube at this link:

I was given a supply of vinyl for the window of these masks, but I hear it can be purchased at JOANN'S Fabric Stores. I was able to use 1/4" elastic, but have ordered some 1/8" as it was quite a tight fit. 

As it will soon be the middle of summer, I want to share some fabric that would make a lovely picnic quilt: one bolt is a border print, and the other an overall scatter of very large 7-8"sunflowers.

Quilters' Quarters is still at stage two step two parameters ... "storm door" pickup ... Call 978-352-2676 to order, and to schedule a pickup. If you are wearing a mask you can make an appointment for an individual visit to the shop. Preferred hours are Thursday through Saturday, noon to 5 pm. 

Thanks for following the blog ... and if you're reading this in email, feel free to share it with your friends.
