Farmer's Wife Friday #14: Finally! A Non-Mask Creation!

It feels great to make something--anything!--besides
a mask.  The fabric masks at least allow me to play
around with quilt fabrics but the 140 surgical masks
I finished up and passed on yesterday are just plain
ol' blue and white.  That put me at 200 and I have
another 100 to work on yet; I haven't decided if I'll
keep going with every bit of that fabric.  It would
mean another 100 at least but I'm pretty worn out
from them.  And yet, they're very rewarding and
when I take a break from them, I feel like I can
give it at least one more go.  

Today's break resulted in two fabric masks
and a Farmer's Wife block--my first
non-mask creation in weeks!


With the hand-sewing here and the many pieces
on the next few blocks, I decided this one block
was enough for today.

It seems weeks since I've done anything creative
so even this little bit was a big relief.
I'm dying to get started on my next quilt
with all of those fun, bright colors but
it's back to the masks for now.

The light is starting to show at the end of this tunnel
so hang in there.  Stay home and safe and sew on!
If you're making masks, I feel ya but we are not quitters!
At least not yet!

You will want to watch this
great little face mask--ahem, er--tutorial
for a laugh.

Happy quilting!

Yay for you, that's a lot of masks. Glad you got to take a break, the little basket block is very cute.

You are another that covered a lot of faces! Once we get past all this we will remember the spring of mask making. The block is a beauty.

I do NOT want Kay's help with face masks ;) I like your block. I've finally been sewing something besides face masks. It has really helped. Now I have to start sewing more masks. Oh well. I like your basket block.
