Though I'm not sure I was ever IN the groove, I have finally begun working on sewing and decorating projects again. Shortly before the holidays last year, I totally lost enthusiasm for such things. After expressing frustration and receiving many kind comments and much sound advice, I think I've finally been able to put things into perspective. This week I've been busy sewing catnip toys to sell at the local veterinarian's office. She is kind enough to offer them to her clients and the sales allow me credit to help pay my furry friends' bills when the needs arise. She does this to support my cat rescuing efforts. When I arrived at the office with a basketful of catnip toys to sell, my vet and the technicians seemed genuinely pleased and said people had been asking for them. That was a nice affirmation.
Since the weather here in southwest Ohio is still cold, I took out some fleece fabric I'd purchased before Christmas and made two large coverlets and two nice-size doggie blankets for some special friends. As I expected would happen, when Glenn saw the finished products he asked,"Where's mine?", so I'll shop today for fleece he might enjoy and make him a coverlet too. It feels good to be back in the groove.
