More Masks

I know everyone is tired of these posts. I'm tired of making masks. But this is what I've been doing with my creative time and energy so that's what the blog is going to get.
I just grab a a piece of fabric that has been in my collection for a while, and I have no idea why I bought it, or how I would use it, and cut a few masks. This happens several times a week. That way I can sew up a few on the weekend to give to family. I was hoping I was done. But when your husband doesn't have one to go to the market you have to solve the problem.
