Just an FYI: My husband is a nurse, and he said the trouble with iron-on interfacing used as a lining is that it some of them do not allow the mask to breathe. When you have the mask on, your breath does not go through it and ends up going around the mask, which means it is spreading outside the mask. I used an iron on in one mask and tried it and I could feel my breathing coming from all around the mask, not contained in the center of the mask.

I have never heard of Steam a Seam. Can someone enlighten me?

Steam a Seam and Wonder Under are lightweight fusible interfacings. Good in sewing clothes where you need just a little bit of body, and also good for crafting purposes.

Wow! Talk about busy. Everyone has been hustling! Love the masks. Just got some new material for a few masks and am looking forward to starting them... here is a photo of what they (hopefully) will look like:



I think it will be fun to wear!

I probably won't get to it until this weekend as I have 3 papers to write for a couple of on line classes I am taking. Also, due to some troubling issues going on in my life right now, I am doing expressive therapy and have a project for that too! Feeling a little overwhelmed this week.

Love seeing what everyone is doing! Makes my heart happy

Theresa, those masks will be so dang cute! I canít wait to see when you have them done. Good luck with all the class papers you need to write. I hope they go smoothly. Iím sorry to hear you are having issues and feeling overwhelmed. Just take a couple deep breaths and know that we are all here for you. Iím sending many good vibes your way.

I finally received my paint in the mail so I can finish painting some wood blocks for my MIL. She has been very anxious with me to get them, so Iím hoping to get them to her tomorrow. Then I can get back to some of my projects again.

I've finished several UFO quilt tops; I haven't quilted any yet or sent them to a long arm quilter. And some need borders. I'll take pictures and post later.

Nice quilt, Grace! I have so many UFO's and still start something new! No discipline I guess!
Linda, good for you getting tops done. Even with moving!

I was in the attic this morning, gathering more thrift drop offs! I found things I forgot I had, as usual! I decided to go up there daily and just get it done! However,
I hope I get rid of more than I keep! LoL!

I've been making flowers and dish cloths and cutting fabric for more projects! Really! See what I mean!

I inherited my trait of having 100 projects started at once from my mother. She had so many needlepoint and cross-stitch projects to do - and she did most of them. I did inherit a few of the kits and they are still UFOs - and she passed away 15 years ago.

I'm trying to thin down the projects I do not think I will ever finish. I'll let you know if that works. LOL!

Right now Iím working on my beginner cross stitch badge. Itís coming along fairly good. Also been busy painting wood blocks for my MIL and making a garland for my friend. Staying busy thatís for sure.

Let me know if you find the cure to not starting projects. As I go through drawers, boxes, and baskets I keep finding more UFOs. Another big quilt top, more blocks, a dress pattern I cut out that I don't even remember...... I keep finishing projects but I keep finding more. At this rate I will never live long enough to start another project.

Remember SABLE = Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy. The term was originally used for yarn and fabric stashes and can be applied to UFO's.

My quilt guild tried an exchange where you trade your UFO with someone else. It didn't work out well -- we all wanted to donate UFOs but no one wanted to take any. I did give two to the Goodwill -- I just got tired of looking at them. They were class projects. I usually take a class to learn a technique, not necessarily to make the whole quilt.

I am the same way, Judith. I take a class to learn, not always to complete anything. I have also bought a lot of specialty rulers that were demonstrated at a guild program, only to never ever use them. LOL!

Some of my UFOs are simple and only need a border and/or quilting, some are blocks that need to be put together, some are fabric/pattern combinations, some are complete kits, and sometimes it is just a pattern I want to make.

Yes -- all the specialty rulers! And most the time you never use them again and the project can be done just as well with a regular ruler. I donated a lot of those special rulers to our guilds Country Store sale at our quilt show. I came across another one this week -- for a pineapple quilt. I found it difficult to use. I made a pineapple quilt some years ago quite easily with just a regular ruler. I've pretty much finished the easy UFOs. Now onto the others.

A sweet farmgirl gifted wonderful embroidery projects to me through my Mom. I couldn't wait to get started. This is my first from her lovely gift. I'm thinking it will be for my dining room table.

Thank you everyone. The papers are coming along slowly. I only have one more to do. Hope to finish it by Monday.

Krista, good luck with the MIL blocks

I have not done the masks yet but again hoping to get to them soon. The website that sell the material for them is under construction right now but she does has a facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ByLisaBee/ It does keep you updated on her website. https://bylisabee.com/

I am looking forward to wearing it in public. Maybe put a smile on someone's face.

Grace: lovely quilt. I don't know how you get everything done that you do. Do you ever sleep???? LOL

Judith, Lazy sometimes is the best. Recharge. A long time ago I saw a saying. If I remember it correctly it said something along the lines of "Sometimes you need to do nothing to become more creative" and besides that "Scientists Explain Why Doing Nothing Makes You More Creative". So now it is official... LOL

Marie: I love that.. SABLE on!!!!

Jessie: That is lovely. How wonderful that will be on your dining room table.

I'm with you girls... most of the time I take a class to learn a new technique not to make a project and sometimes have a hard time finishing those from classes because the technique was to enhance a project I already had going.

Well, not getting my last paper done by surfing the web, or going down the pinterest rabbit hole so best go for now.

I have used Wonder Under but had never heard of Steam A Seam. I haven't done much sewing lately that has required using interfacing. Thanks for the answer Judith.

Grace that is a sweet little quilt!
