Bonnie's Challenge Quilt

Remember the Quilt Circle of Friends challenge? Members were given the pattern by Eleanor Burns, Circle of Friends, and a 10" square of fabric. The challenge was to make something using this pattern and the square.

Isn't that special?

We got you covered!

Got these off in the mail to the Iowa Grands. Most of these came from the Moda panel for masks. I am hearing they like the masks with the adjustable straps best because they don't hurt their ears

These half yard assortments are now on sale for $25 each. These have been some of the popular choices for mask making.

I have just placed an order for more 1/4" white elastic. Coming this fall, 1/4" elastic will also be available in colors and I have ordered it in aqua and red.

One more note on masking up - we now have the flexible nose pieces available, 5 for $2.50. 

This in addition to mask kits and pre-made masks.  Guess you could say we got you covered!

Kids Camp

This week of August is Kids Camp at Memaw's house.

 We hope the Texas Grands can join us next year.

This one is for you, Kay C!

We  managed to make a few masks, trying different styles and fits to make sure we come up with the best fit mask for school.

We did a lot of playing and eating of ice cream. 

Plus, we baked an upside down pineapple cake which really had these guys intrigued. The cake was for Jackson's birthday. He is 9 years old today.  Happy Birthday, Jack!
