The reason is my cat Nin. He has been living with my husband and I for the last 11 years. He keeps me company while I sew and seems absolutely fascinated by the movement of my hands when I am hand sewing. I believe there is quite a lot of people who like both sewing and cats, judging by the amount of people who sew and live with cats.
Recently he had a serious health problem that started with a liver problem and developed into multiple organ failure. I thought he wasn’t going to make it but after almost a month of medication he is back to his old self. I feel so relieved. You don’t realize how much our pets mean to us until we are about to lose them. He is getting so spoiled now!
