LPoCF August Challenge

 Hello again, 

Well, we are hoping to avoid a second wave of Covid-19 here in NSW, we are still choosing to stay close to home, so still no little feathered friend for my lonely budgie. I started making face masks this week for our family and used pipe cleaners for the nose pieces, large scraps of quilting fabric for the inner and outer layers, they will all need a good wash, the fabric has been in storage for a few years and of all things the barrier layer is a pillow protector which is made from the same fabric as the government suggested re-usable shopping bag... I can breathe and not fog up my glasses, so a few more are in the works... need to sort out sizes, some need to be bigger others smaller....

Today brings us to an all new Anything goes Challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, I have made two cards one of which is in the post... both for Family History Friends one who loves Autumnal Colours and the other for a Cool Climate garden lover... using Corner Roses Pre-Coloured from our Sponsor Fred She Said

Is anyone else finding issues with this new blogger, I have had to change several settings to get it to looks as a normal page, I kept getting big gaps after hitting enter to start a new line. Could they not have it set up like other programs... finding the same settings in similar spots... I had to highlight and play with it until I got it to look 'normal'... 

Thank you for looking in...
I hope you are all staying safe and well and following all the various health advice...
Have a wonderful week... 

P.S. A huge thank you to all my lovely blogging friends and visitors who stop by and take the time to leave me a comment...

What beautiful and elegant cards Megan - love them both!
I am currently making masks for family, and am using a heavy vialene as the middle layer for the children, and a heavy taffeta/light nylon for the adults - it's just something I found in my stash, and it works well - everyone must be sewing as there is little elastic to be found in town!'
Stay safe

Love the use of Fred she said roses, Megan...two beautiful cards... yes I'm onky doing necessary here although we are thankfully in the clear here for moment, none since April.. or May. But still wearing mask at shops etc.
Great idea re the pipe cleaners though. Ive used disposable masks and sprayed both sides with 100% alcohol spray from car shop.. Jaycars. Had it and heard it would work. Bought hand made one too which is not as comfy but prettier..

Thanks for sharing, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. X
