What are you sewing or crafting for the month of May? With all the stay-at-home time we have right now, I've been trying to sew more. I've been making face masks and have sold several of those. This week I have pants to alter or hem. If I ever get caught up with alterations, there are several quilts to finish.
Since the stores are closed, I browsed online to get a few supplies and was SHOCKED to find that much of what I needed was sold out. The few items I could find were much, much more expensive than usual. So, I'm holding off buying anything and just using what I have on hand. This is helping me to make do with what is already there and come up with new ways to improvise.
I am working on crocheting a hooded blanket for a good friend whose brothers wife is expecting their first child next month. They live out of state, so I'm hoping to finish it this month and get it mailed off. In other news, she (my friend), found out today that her brother was exposed to COVID 19 through his job last night (he's a cop).
I've been making mini hair scrunchies for some little girls and crocheting scrubbies. Now that I'm done with those I'm going to start on my sister's quilt. It's a whole cloth so no piecing a top. I need to finish basting the 3 layers together then start the quilting. I'll try basting it tomorrow if I can stand that long (I spread it out on our bed).

I'm really starting to notice the dent in my fabric stash, and it is energizing! I've been using up smaller pieces of fabric to sew masks. I have tons of flannel and am currently working on some simple baby bibs and blankets as we have several ladies at church who are expecting. They are small and easy to do a couple at a time, then I can rest and prop up my feet for a while and do a couple more.
