This week has been about making masks. I had a request for masks from a gal who has been relocated to the ER to work with people coming in with anxiety and stress. My daughter also wanted masks, as did my two daughter-in-laws. One is a hospice nurse and is only given one N95 mask per week. Plus I made & mailed some to a trucker friend, and of course other family members.

Also made 2 kid size masks. I thought my 5 yr old grand would like a mask for her doctor kit, and then thought 2 yr old might feel left out.

I’m switching to making a few Easter gifts for my grands. I found some adorable tutorials for bunny and chick bags.

Listen to the Birds Sing has this cute Bunny Pouch tutorial

Stitched has a different cute Bunny Bag.

Make It Love It has a fun Chick Bag.

I’m going to make the Bunny Pouch for my granddaughter and the Chick Bag for my grandson. Hubs braved the grocery store and bought some treats that we will put in the bags.

My son and daughter-in-law have done all our grocery shopping for us since the Stay at Home order, so this was a big deal for Hubs to venture out! He wore his mask, wiped down the cart, and sanitized his hands once back in the car. Then once home, shoes stayed at back door, he wiped down all the groceries before I put things away and wiped down the counter, door knobs, etc. His clothes and mask went in the washer, and he took a shower. Over kill? Don’t think so, since we have medical ppl in our family who recommend doing all the above.

Since I don’t have quilting to share this week, I thought I’d share this find -

See the old rusty bike? Wow! Does that bring back memories! I have no idea who took this photo, so can’t give credit. My Dad had a bike like this, painted red. Do you see the seat over the front tire, and the one over the back tire? My brother would ride on the back. There was another seat welded on the handle bars, that’s where I sat! I’ll have to ask my brother if he remembers. Can you imagine! No helmets or other safety precautions back in the 50s!

Till next time. Have a Blessed Weekend!

    Hi Sharon! Oh yeah, no helmets for bike riders back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Great job on the masks. We have to venture out into the store this weekend ourselves. We have tried the pickup curbside thing but when they’re out of something they can’t substitute on the fly. I’m going to share those steps so we know what to do when we get home with whatever we can get. {{Hugs}} and thanks for linking up. Happy Easter! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Great mask production. I haven’t gotten quite so good about wiping groceries down and all the rest. We do quarantine packages in our laundry room for a day or two before opening. Hubby volunteers at Red Cross blood drives and does the whole clean, wipe, shower and wash clothes when he gets home. And he wears his mask when he goes out. I stay home and sew. Take care.
