Default I took your advice - just do something! - and here it is

A pillowcase for grandson. It's a small start, but I did something, lol. I also set up my sewing machine on the kitchen table, which is my absolute favorite place to sew. It felt so 'comfortable' sewing again, I hope I'm back in the groove.
