Figuring It Out, Safely Social from From My Carolina Home

Does it seem like this isolation is never going to end?  As much as I know that someday it will, and we will be able to get back to our fun times, meetings and social events, for now we just have to find a way to bridge the gap.  But boy, is it a big gap!  I know now what it is that bothers me about the term “social distance”.  I looked up ‘distance’ in a thesaurus, and what I found was enlightening.

Masked Quilter

I had a small window between major projects to make a few masks. There are many design options, tutorials and videos to help every kind of sewer popping all over the internet.

Beautiful Island Batik fabric is a good choice for this project.  Batik fabric has a tight weave and is a good option for non medical masks.

Instead of the shoelace as seen in the Craft Passion video, I used Bonnie’s Craft ...
