Crafting vs. Aging — Month 1

I concede defeat for January. It looks like my aging body won this round.
Unfortunately, I’ve been dealing with a whole bunch of new health issues, which means I haven’t been home very much to play with my fabrics and sewing machine. So no English Paper Piecing quilt happened.

But since quilting was the task for the month, I’ll take us all back a few months to a project I worked on for charity. I made these little cage mats for an animal rescue organization. First I had to figure out how to manhandle thick layers of fabric and get them to stay together without my even-feed (walking) foot* that was still in transit at the time. And then I had the satisfaction of knowing I was helping to make some little critters more comfortable as they waited for their furever home.


I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, but I am very proud of these.
