I had thought that my efforts to salvage Clooney’s pet mat would go more quickly than it has.
The time I had budgeted for refelting my test coaster turned out to be insufficient, but once it was done:
my spirits were buoyed by the results, and I returned to the dining table to continue the salvage effort.
In due time, I had these three additional table leg coasters ready for felting:
and I had made substantial progress on a fourth:
There is a certain satisfaction and romance to salvage work: reclaiming something that would otherwise be lost and fashioning value from that which seemed to have none.
But the work is neither easy nor quick, and so (it would seem), I have at least another day’s work ahead of me before I will have all of the table leg coasters I need for my dining table/crochet empire command center.
