The Perfect Hostess Gift?

Tomorrow the Dear Husband and I will go on our first social outing since we began sheltering in place in March. The big event is a Happy Hour with good friends at their home. We’ll rendezvous on their spacious deck where we can chat (and eat and drink!) while maintaining proper social distance.

Here’s what I’m bringing as a hostess gift:

I never thought I would be bringing face masks as a hostess gift. On the other hand, I never expected to be living through a pandemic.

Here’s a look at the inside of the masks:

You can see each one has a channel at the top to hold a nose wire.

I made a new mask for myself and added a channel for a nose wire. Unfortunately, I wasn’t paying attention and attached it to the wrong side of the mask lining. When I sewed the lining and the main mask piece right sides together and turned them, the channel was nowhere to be seen. Silly me!

I’m not going to take it apart. There’s an easier solution, which I will share in my next post.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    As a grateful recipient of your masks (even a special mask for a wedding I’m attending today) I feel certain your hostess gifts will be a sensational hit!

    This actually made me laugh. But, I suppose it is a sign of the times.

    Char, This too, made me laugh. I am one who always takes hostess gifts… usually pertaining to the party or theme of the party. I am right now not socializing but if I were, this would be a very thoughtful and practical hostess gift. :0)
