    How masks are entering our everyday reality

    As I was shopping for a sleeve ironing board this morning, this popped up. Pictures and description seem so matter of fact.

    So true, but kind of sad

      Yup. Even tv commercials now have actors wearing masks.
      Rainy days are for quilting. Thank goodness I live in a rainforest! 😁

        Wow. That is sad. I have been happy that I could make masks and surgical caps for my daughters and their nurse friends, but it is growing old on me. After next weekend I am taking a break from them and making a couple memory quilts. My mom will be 90 this year and I have some of my dads clothes to do a quilt for her. And the a tshirt quilt for a family friend. Looking forward to something different.

          Yes we were all on the mask bandwagon. And yes, tired of making masks although I didn't make as much as you all did.
          Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

            Yes, I think we are all getting tired of making masks. I have only made them for family and friends. I started making the pleated ones but find I like making the ones using the Creative Grids template better and find it quicker. I just made a few more for my granddaughter thinking she would need more but the medical facility she is interning at supplies them each day.
            If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

              I quit making them after around 175 and they are readily available at stores now.

                I'm tired of making them as well, and I haven't made all that many. My mama's facility just told me they want us to use their medical masks once we get to her room. Ok, sure...no problem! But honestly, I found it gaped on the sides and it was easy to breathe, whereas mine was snug. Mine also has a pocket I tuck a coffee filter into. It's a bit more uncomfortable to breathe with, but I think mine does a good job. I can't smell any smoke when I wear it. I make the pleated kind.

                  I started making face masks in 2016 for an organization in Massachusetts for children with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). So by the time Covid19 came along I was pretty much a master at making masks. I decided that there were so many people making masks for Covid19 that I would leave that task to them & would continue to make masks for the CHD children just as I always have done. I never get tired of making these masks and send them out to the organization every other month. I make 4 sizes....baby, small, medium & large. Thanks to all who have been making masks for family & friends & frontline workers, doctors, nurses, etc.

                    I'm even seeing seasonal masks now for the holidays. Sigh... I hope the day will come when we no longer need them again.

                      I couldn't agree with you more! I can't wait to see this 'accessory' go away.

                    The last big batch I made were for children. I am done making them and I'm using the scraps in a quilt.

                          A few weeks ago I went to a big chain sporting goods store to get a new pair of tennis shoes. As I was social distancing in the line to check out I was noticing items for sale near the checkout. They had cloth masks for sale marked at $17.99 for one! Come on, really?! And they weren't special official team logos or anything, just plain. I am a little burned out on mask making too but I do like the CG template.

                            My dd's and I went to Ross a couple of days ago and there was a ton of masks at the gotcha check out line. They looked like they came from Asia, like the kind of thing you would get out of a coin operated machine. lol
