I took another 100 face masks to the med center today. I think I will move on to something else, also. This is my 3rd week off work, I go back Monday. I wouldn't mind another week off, but I am so thankful I have a job to go back to.
Our local hospital had a different pattern for face masks that they can use for health care workers. I made 11 of them yesterday afternoon. I have a serger, so it streamlined the process.

Not heavily, but very noticeable on the red backing. My question is, why do I have to use such a big needle?
What should I charge to machine quilt a hand embroidered baby quilt. Just simple meander or straight line quilting?
I made a quilt for a friends gd, and sent it to her a few weeks ago. I haven't heard anything from her about receiving the package. Should I ask her about it or let it go. I would like to know if it arrived or not. Her dd lives in Australia, & are supposed to visit this mo., & the possibility that she can't take it home crossed my mind. That would be ok, I would understand. She could sell it & put the cash in a college fund...........Continue
I have created an account with Connecting Threads 2 or 3 times, but I can never sign in a second time to order. I have to go to 'I forgot my password' and reset it. It is very frustrating. Anyone else have this problem?
