Lucky Cat Potholders +

Lucky Cat and Stripes

My studio was clean but my mind was still cluttered.  Anxiety producing thoughts fought for space, playing King Of the Hill in my brain.

I knew I needed silence to quiet my mind, something for my hands to do and one thing for my mind to focus on.

I was so relieved when after just a few minutes of searching I pulled out the square of Lucky Cat fabric.  I’ve looked at those cats so many times and wondered why I couldn’t imagine what to do with them.

I guess they were waiting around for today. Because as soon as I saw them, I knew I could make some good potholders.

And they did focus my mind because they weren’t easy to work with.  So I really had to pay attention without overthinking.

And when I ran out of cats, I used up some of the scraps making this potholder called Grounded.


I’m working through the anxiety, but words still aren’t coming easy, so here’s some pictures instead…

Stripes is not a Lucky Cat, but all the pieces fit together…
No, she’s not a Lucky Cat either,  but she insisted on being made.

I’ll finish making these into potholders by early next week and have them for sale in my Etsy Shop then.
