I work for an animal shelter doing adoption outreach and love it, with every up and down of the job, I love it. The sewing is kind of an escape from a job where everything matters so much. However, even with that, I can’t totally get away from it.
See, the love of my life, Tobycat, came from a shelter originally and is why I first got involved with shelter animals. Here he is in his indignant glory along with that first skirt and the printout of the Colette bloomer pattern (I plan to lengthen it a bit).
He’s a big part of why I don’t get as much sewing done. When it comes to playing fetch with him or pinning pieces together, he usually wins.
