Beautiful table topper, Grace! And your owl is adorable!! I just showed it to Everleigh and she was excited. She says she likes the eyes lol. Love your PHD. I would say I have one of those too lol. I did get another bookmark made for one of my friends for her birthday. I will be getting it mailed out to her when ever I head to the post office next. I also started making a crochet scrunchie but didnít get very far. I feel like I am all over the place with my crafting right now.

I agree,, 6-7" elastic works best...
I make the accordion folded masks...
and it is a great way to use up fabric scraps...
I leave an opening on top, to slip in a piece of pipe cleaner (for over the nose)... and the stitch
all around the pipe cleaner...

Linda, your masks look great. Thatís so sweet of you to make your family masks.

Winnie, thatís a super cute hat! Definitely reminds me of Easter! I canít believe Easter is already this weekend. This year is flying by already.

Yesterday I started working on some Easter block decorations. There was to many different parts that I didnít finish. I got up this morning and added another layer of white paint. Itís looking like it will need another layer. For some reason my paint isnít covering like I want it too. So in between painting layers I will work on some crochet.

I've found that the 6-7" elastic works for us; 9" elastic won't stay on our ears and gaps too much. I've used several different configurations of fabrics and elastic. Have another version I'm going to make today. My problem is I am running out of elastic and since we aren't going out to WalMart or grocery store except every 10-14 days, I can't get any more for a while. My husband is a nurse (retired now) and he prefers ties instead of elastic because he can adjust the fit better. So I will be making more but with ties.

I've made some masks using 10 x 6 inch pieces of batik fabric as it has a tighter weave and fused wonderunder between that and white fabric. No pleats, just inserted 9 inch pieces of elastic in each of the side hems. Fast to make -- takes about 15-20 minutes. CDC has the basic pattern.

Iíve been working on face masks for the family and friends. These were for my son and his family - I used fabric with Star Wars, minions, old cars, colorful fish, and Hasbro, and one with chickens for my DIL.

The music one is just one Iíve made for Edís sonís family.

Grace, I agree lol! She is starting to look less and less like Dumbo! Itís amazing how fast she has grown! I am thinking of finding a puppy paw print fabric and making her a blanket of her own.

Grace, rhinestones would be so cool! It would make you look very fancy!

I took a break from crochet yesterday and started working on a UFO tie blanket that has been in my craft stuff for almost 2 years. I got all sides pinned and 2 sides cut before my kids woke from nap. I'm going to finish cutting today during nap time. Maylee apparently thinks it's for her, but I'll be happy to share with her!

Linda, my BFF, Irmgard (in Germany) made both the fitted and fan folded.. I like that the fan folder covers more of my face but when I am looking downward, my mask sort of gets forced up.... maybe I need to quit looking downward! lol!

Maybe I will try sewing a/the (cone)fitted mask tomorrow.

face mask

I snuck the white throw away mask out of my DH's wood working tool box to look at as an idea for my face masks.. I wasn't crazy with the ones I had been making.
On the inside of mine I hand tacked on 'pelon' interfacing, as a barrier..
But when I made my DH his mask, I used a double layer of tight woven flannel fabric..

I have COPD, I never smoked,, but my dad was a very heavy smoker and I had Whooping Cough as an infant... so I am the not so lucky one in the family,, and have crappy lungs.. and for that reason I have decided to wear a mask anytime I am out in public...

Both my daughter and 1 granddaughter have Asthma and are on medication and Nebulizers,, so I will be making masks for them as well.

So,, maybe I need to 'Bling' up our masks with rhinestones and yoyos... what do you think???

Beautiful quilt, Judith!

Heather, your Easter aprons ar adorable! Definitely looks like spring to me!

Linda, I love that color paint! Many years ago we painted our old kitchen that color and I loved it. It was my favorite room and I couldnít help but feel happy in there. There is something magical about that color! You are going to love it.

Everyoneís beautiful work has me feeling a tad bit jealous. Lately itís been taking me forever to complete any project. Iím hoping this funk passes soon and I can get my faster groove back.

What a pleasant crafting room! Lots of light, and a ceiling fan. And is that a tv above the shelves?
