Happy 4th of July weekend, at least if you are here in the US! This year certainly seems to be going by in a flash but here we are at Friday again - and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's get started!
This week has been a crazy one, and I've been working on a lot of things, but haven't finished much lately. Or rather, I've finished some small things, continued working on some big things, and done a little dreaming about future possibilities!
I made a prototype clear mask that is much easier to make than my last attempt....
...and made some pretty masks for a friend of mine!
I continued working on the blog hop project - quilting has started!
And I fooled around with some scraps on my cutting table. After seeing this pic on Instagram...
I remembered some scraps on my sewing table - the remnants of my Moongate quilt - and yesterday I played with laying them out to see if I'd have enough to do something similar. And I do! So they are tucked away for a future project.
And best of all, yesterday when I went to Joann's to get some muslin for a quilt back, I lucked out and got some Kona black, which had just come in to the store that morning. I have been looking for it, or actually any 100% black cotton, for a week or more, and can't find it anywhere. I think it's being diverted for mask making. But I sure was glad to have the chance to get 3 yards for my stash!
And one last thing - I'm trying to quietly start a revolution, so I put up a challenge on Facebook - #WhoDoYouMaskFor.
For ten days, I'm going to share a picture of someone I wear a mask for, with an explanation of why. I'll also challenge someone else to do the same for ten days. There are so many people in my part of the country who feel that wearing a mask is an infringement of their personal rights! I'm hoping to open some eyes and change a few hearts and minds. Feel free to join me if you want!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you,
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
