Inky's Cushion.

Yesterday I took Inky the cat's cushion I had finished to Club for Show and Tell. Unfortunately Helen who started the project wasn't there. I will show her another time;( or she will see it here .) Back at the beginning of this year when our pusscat Inky died I put posted  the photo of him that's on the cushion. Helen who sometimes looks at my blog had seen it here and as a gesture of friendship and caring she uplifted the photo from my blog and printed it out on fabric for me. ( since then I have got some of the printable fabric and made labels , numbers etc ) This is the finished cushion cover,  (just quilted in the ditch ) with a few of his favourite things on it - rabbits and mice!
He would have loved it, being a spoiled, but much loved, still often anti social ( he had a traumatic kittenhood till we found him ) wee fellow.
Yesterday we had yet more rain and some thunder, which sent R racing for the computer to unplug it! Glad he remembered cause I wasn't here.
During the rain he has been painting some of his firewood / log dragging equipment bright red in an attempt to stop them getting lost in the dirt all the time. I saw them as workshop ART!

What a lovely way to remember Inky! I bet he is grinning at you from his side of the rainbow bridge.
Like the tractor art too.

Inky's cushion turned out beautifully, he would have been thrilled to sleep on that.
