  • Since I mentioned I was sewing masks in the other thread, I'm hoping it's okay to post a picture here.

    These are done and I will ship to a physician friend's medical practice in Minnesota tomorrow. They are designed to take a wire nose piece if the wearer wants one, and an N95 filter if they are available.

    They will be UV sterilized when they arrive at their destination.

    I have another 100 to go. Click image for larger version

      Wow, please tell me how many layers, and are they made of cotton?
      I am in the process of making Some too but only for local use

      Thank you, everyone.

      asmurf, the ones I was asked to make are cotton on front, flannel on back.

      The pattern I started with was the one from the Turban Project, but I modified it when the requirements changed.

  • If you're stuck at home, like many of us are, then take this opportunity to catch up on projects you've put aside or haven't had the time to start. I've been getting back into my story writing. Not only does it pass the time, but I've been so busy before this and couldn't write often.

    I've also been using Netflix to watch the old Smurfs cartoon XD

    I'm itching to write a Smurfs fanfic, but not quite confident enough in my Smurf knowledge for that yet. Is there a section on this forum to post stories? I didn't see any, but I'd like to make sure.

    Hope you're all okay wherever you are. A big hug to you all from Australia!

      If you want to post fanfic, this is probably the best topic to post it in. Please make sure that it is appropriate for all ages!

            • Today, 30th April, celebrating the 100th birthday of Captain Tom Moore!

              In case this U.K. news hasn’t reached you..... in the run-up to his 100th birthday, he did 100 laps of his garden with his walking-frame, crowd-funded to try and raise a little money for the beleaguered National Health Service.

              People took him to their hearts, and the total (so far!) he has raised is....huge drum-roll....more than Β£29 MILLION ($36 million). Thank you, Captain Tom! A true superhero!

                  • Hey guys!
                    I don't know if anyone will even see this or how to go about it (here, new thread, etc) but... I'll try it here. If I did wrong, please let me know or move this where-ever.

                    I basically vanished January 2019. An accident, a job change, different health issues since winter 2019, now surgery. I don't play as much anymore as I did, sometimes I don't even check daily. I was behind again and again on updates, just found a bunch of wonders I had not done yet, and only rarely checked the forum. When I did, I felt out of the loop and like I did not fit in anymore after having been gone for a while - which of course got worse over time. I thought I would be unwelcome. (I still feel out of place but dare to say hi.) Now I came online and saw Spelling Bee has passed which was a real shock. She was always so lovely, level-headed, helpful.

                    Basically, my question is: What has changed? Apparently, there also was a developer change? What are important things I should know? There seems to be a friending system now? How are the new developers? From what I saw, largely absent? Who is our contact person now with Spelling Bee gone and I guess Twinkiepie too? Anything you can tell me is appreciated!!

                    If you just want to tell me about you that is cool, too! (Idk, maybe you are proud you finished uni, got a cool new job, got a child or pet, had a great travelling experience, etc)

                      You are not of of place. We all know real life matters are more important than games. You can play the game anytime you wish. I also don't play the game as much as I used to. Collecting mini game prizes and building all wonders are my personal goals in this game. When I achived that I simply stop playing until new update arrives. Now I visit this forum more than I play the game This forum has become my daily newspaper. Anyways welcome back!

                      You wonderful people!

                      Cupcake
                      Thank you!!

                      - I am using IOS but couldn't connect my iPad to my laptop anymore. iTunes refuses to let me save anything. For years already... I still have Game Center on, though. So I have to get a Smurfy ID? How easy/difficult is it to recover from that save? And how 'safe' is it? I know that sounds stupid, because no matter where it's saved, others could access it, but saving it on the server of the developer sounds... I'm not sure if that is better or worse?
                      - I have seen that! I haven't used the search function so far, though, but I really love all the new categories! Bit confusing at first because you're still used to the old system, but the overhaul really helped.
                      - Not sure if I want friends yet. Mostly because of my grove, tbh. Which also leads me to this question: Has the water tile bug been fixed?
                      - Another friending related question: Can we 'like' areas of our friends and do the see who gave them a like? Can we somehow mark what gift we would like? So if I have friends, how do I know what to send them?
                      - Seen that! I feel like travelling with Feathers is quicker, so I'll keep using our feathery friend. The map is really beautiful, though!
                      - Ahhh, Cupcake! Both the Mega Myster Box and Reporter are so old, ahaha. Yes, I very much was around then. I don't do Reporter anymore because at some point the box prizes weren't interesting anymore, and then I kept missing days, so I ignore him now. The Mega Mystery Box was... not that good - kindly put - at the beginning but then they changed odds. Still, there were so many items that I never got and I gave up. Is there an updated list somewhere on the forum what is currently in the boxes?

                      Thanks for the info! You were one of the first who helped me when I came to this forum and you surely fulfil this role skillfully!
                      Don't know Unicorn Smurf, but I am sure they are doing a good job, too.

                      Thank you! I think I would have gone mad if I aimed for all mini game prizes. There are games where I just am not lucky and I gave up on getting the missing prize(s).

                      HappySmurf
                      Aww, thank you! I think we all need smiles and laughter, at the moment. Same to you! (And thank you for the friending offer.)

                      - Yes, get a Smurfy ID. Then you can back-up to PopReach’s servers- you can force a manual save, which I do pretty frequently. That way you have your local device save and the PopReach server save. Game Center is useless since Apple stopped supporting it, and you will constantly get the message to choose between versions of villages.
                      - Only add/accept friends if you want to, and for heaven’s sake, don’t get hung up about how your village looks!
                      - I don’t think the water tiles are an issue for IOS players, but I don’t know if it has been β€˜fixed’ per se. Did you have problems with it before?
                      - You can like friends’ areas, but they can’t see who has liked them. You cannot see what they want Except through their names and signs in 5he villages. We had asked for that, but it never got implemented.
                      - I do not know if there is an MMB list- maybe the help section in the game? If it exists, it probably exists here: https://smurfsforums.popreach.com/fo...llection-topic

                      Thanks for your kind words, Evanna!
