Project Quilting 11.6 - Vibrant and Vivacious

And so comes the end of this season's Project Quilting hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams.  This week's theme is Vibrant and Vivacious.

It has been quite the week.  I work for an essential service, so a good part of my weekend was spent working.  Move aside stapler, these are now my new office supplies.

There is no hand sanitizer, Lysol wipes, masks, etc. to be found.  I decided to try making a mask using a tutorial by Button Counter.  I used different widths of elastic -- what I had on hand.

I don't recommend the wider elastic -- it doesn't stay snug around your ears.  But in the absence of another option, it's better than nothing.

Last night, I needed some sewing therapy, so at 11:00 p.m., I made a quick needle book.

It didn't take long to make, but it was enough to keep my mind occupied on happy things.

I don't know if I'll find more time to sew this week.  Stay safe and healthy friends.  #FlattenTheCurve


  1. Sewing therapy certainly helps to calm me. Keep safe and healthy Anja!

  2. I hope you can stay safe and healthy, too, Anja. The needle book looks like it was great sewing therapy (and so handy, too). I am happy you used oranges for the masks. :)

  3. Sewing therapy can really help. So glad you got a chance for a little bit of stitching. Stay safe and healthy! I love thinking of you in those orange masks!

  4. I’m with you on there need for sewing therapy but also the lack of focus on my part... I love those masks and planned to make some under the direction of my nurse friend Danielle.

  5. Delighted to see that even these have a bright Anja colour . Keep well and keep safe my friend x

  6. Nice projects - sorry about the need for the masks. I find all of this surreal, as I am sure you do. Wishing you well on the Project Quilting endeavor and managing the new world we are in!
