I envy people who are talented at arts and crafts. I used to knit in high school and college and actually created some pretty amazing sweaters (that I still own), but once I started living with cats, knitting became challenging, what with the constant batting at the moving needles. The only way I could have knitted was behind closed doors, and since I refuse to exclude my cats from any of my activities, that just wasn’t going to happen. Sadly, I either have no talent in other areas of arts and crafts, or if I do, I haven’t discovered it yet.
Hilary Cairns of The Pineapple Cats only learned Needle Felting a year ago, but when you look at her felted animal art and pet pillows, you’d think she’s been doing it all her life. Her Etsy Shop is filled with whimsical creations that will be sure to bring a smile.
