OPAM for July

 I've had nine finishes for July.
 Baby Darcie's quilt.
 My scissor holder and fob.
As with most people, I have made some masks. 
I finally found some elastic in my stash while moving things. 
I knew I had some but had no idea where it was and you 
couldn't buy any as everyone was out of stock. 
I've managed to get some more now.
This is the inside. The outer is black.
 I liked the pattern I used so made more. 
The first three are the inside again and they are navy outside. 
Mine is the floral one but I used plain for the lining! 

Noel and Nelson's have the elastic that goes around the 
back of their heads instead of around their ears. 
They have found them better for having them on for 
longer periods. Nelson's work mate really liked his 
and has asked me to make one for him!
A lady at Austin's work had already made one for him 
and had used shoe laces for the straps 
so I changed them to the head elastic too.
I found for myself and Paris we needed half way between
the adult and child's size. This one is for Paris using the medium size.
 The sewing room move is slowly coming along. 
I stopped to make the masks. It is lovely sewing looking 
out the window whereas I always had my back to it.
Thanks to Kris for keeping us inspired.

Great work with all your finishes, especially the mask making. Good to see you getting your room working.

Beautiful masks. Putting elastic around the head is a good idea as the ear ones don't fit me properly and that's why I made ties instead. Our local wool shop had elastic stolen despite only 5 people allowed in at a time. Sewing room looking good.

Nine finishes? Wowzer!

The pincushion and scissor holder is ADORABLE! I absolutely love the fabric choices as well!
