Na Na pinches her pennies

Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.

Do you need masks?

I’m getting ready to make more masks while on my staycation. Sewing is my favorite pass time. I had been doing some sketches for a possible quilt to make and calm my jitters. That’s when I received a request for more masks for a couple of people. Sure! Masks are sewing too.

I thought I’d ask if anyone else needs masks before I start cutting fabric. Please email me if you need some. I make them with ties instead of elastic because its more comfortable that way. I use two different color fabrics so you always know which is the inside. I use washable quilt cottons. The ties are t-shirt fabric strips.

I know there are people making and selling these masks but I don’t charge for the ones I make. I do ask for the postage though.

🙂 Gosh for someone determined to quit blogging I’ve sure been on here a lot today. I have dozens of comments to go through later.

    A face mask quilt would be one for 2020

    Your masks look super. I wish I lived closer, I would have bought some from you (yes I know, they’re free but I’ve bought them from ladies making them in my community too).

    Anita, you are so kind. Please charge for your masks. You put time, effort and material into this project. This is your cottage industry. You are a remarkable lady. Sending prayers and blessings . Bette O’Connor

    GOD BLESS YOU NANA!! You are a remarkable lady, and I am SO happy to have found your blog, you’re such an inspiration to me. I pray you find peace with everything that you are dealing with. Take time to reflect, refocus and heal. The state of affairs in this country have really taken a huge toll on everyone…in some way or another. I hope whatever ‘new path’ you decide to take, I can follow!…(gentle grin) Stay healthy honey and know there are A LOT of people that love and appreciate you..just the way you are!! Blessings, Karla
