So I went for a closer look, and realized that it was momma kitty, taking a nap in the sun.
She appears to have claimed my studio as home.
I finished a 4x6 rug today, and though I wasn't all that fond of it on the loom, I do like it better on the floor.
I find it a lot easier to weave a rug off the top of my head, rather than to weave a rug by someone else's direction. But that's what custom rugs are all about.
I have once again been reevaluating what I do. I found myself getting overwhelmed, and had to sit and ponder why. I think I may need to rethink some of it, and use a little imagination to get back to the place I want to be.
No one is as hard on me as I am. And lately I have been beating myself up pretty good.
When I started Crazy as a Loom, I wanted to weave. I wanted to create beautiful rugs, and I wanted to enjoy my retirement years doing it.
But I am by nature a very hard worker.
So it stands to reason that my little business has turned out to be a little bigger than I expected, and to be honest, maybe bigger than I want.
This is what I am struggling with. That old work ethic/making money/being happy routine. It is an issue that has dogged me my whole life.
I would like to get it right, eventually. I would like to learn to relax. I wonder if it is possible.
The kittens have come home from their weekend with Tammy. Now it is my turn to try to get them to warm up to their situation.
And it's time to seriously look for homes for them.
