Slow Stitching to a Finish

We took a day off on Friday and enjoyed a three day weekend. My Guy was still pretty sore from his bicycle accident the weekend before, so the plan was to just take it easy and hang out at home.  He was feeling much better by the end of the weekend, though he still has some really colorful bruises. 

My goal was to get laundry done and then spend a lot time in the sewing room working on some finishes.  The easiest was to finish reworking some face masks.  



These were some of the first masks I made. The elastic had worn out, so I reconstructed them with a new fabric backing and T-shirt ear loops.  The face mask making is done, at least for a bit. I may make some new Halloween ones, I have some fun novelty fabrics that would make cool masks.  

Most of my sewing room time was spent binge watching British Bake Off while sewing down the binding for the Morewood Mystery.



It was late in the evening before the last stitch was made. 




So this is the only picture I have of the finished quilt, showing that all 4 corners are stitched down.  This was my September One Monthly Goal.  It feels good to meet it with a few days to spare.

I missed your post last week of your husbands accident - those bruises sure take awhile to go away don't they. I will be glad when we no longer need face masks - ours are lasting as we only need them a couple times a week here and there and I bought a box of disposables also

Good save on those masks, Kate! Did you rip them completely apart? I have at least one with a failing ear loop. Congrats on your quilt finish! I'll be looking forward to the reveal post.
