2/3 of the Summer Has Passed.

 Getting closer to the end of August ... this has been a very long summer, with heat waves, high humidity, and many long hours cutting and sewing face masks for the pandemic. I'm very happy that I started and nearly finished my granddaughter's first birthday quilt six  months ahead of time ... so it  was ready to be dropped off, left in a bag at the gate to their side door on her birthday, where her dad or mum would find it and bring it in to her... Keeping social distance and not seeing my grandchildren has been very challenging. But as the white house occupant said, "It is what it is."

Here is the quilt I made for her, from a doll house panel on the front (from Red Rooster's Home With Me line) and a beautiful foliage/forest (from Timeless Treasures) print on the back. 

A few cute dolls from the dollar store makes this sweet panel a happy play space for a one year old granddaughter.

The mask production continues ... 'smile masks' are coming along more quickly now, and the pleated masks still disappear quickly each time I put some out on the bench for free. Donations for masks (and sometimes for free fabric for mask makers) also continue to arrive, those more slowly on these very hot August days ... Still, nearly a thousand dollars have been sent on to the food pantry.

I'm doing my best to stay cool and productive. I plan to interrupt the daily mask making sessions next week so I can make a few more comfort quilts for the fire and police vehicles... I haven't brought them any since February, and feel remiss!

Visit the shop's Facebook page for more updates on in-stock materials. I'll continue with the Covid-19 Stage Two contact-free plan of 'storm door pickups' and online orders.  Call or email your requests, and I'll do my best to respond on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of each week.
