I recently bought matelasee bedspread that doubles as a nice, light-weight blanket. I love it and it was totally perfect until Jim decided to take a running jump at the corner of the bed.
OMG… And then he did the same thing on the other side. This is why I don’t have quilts on the beds!
I decided to use my sewing skills to mend the rips with thread. I knew the mends would show, so I embraced it. The gray #8 perle cotton is a little darker than the spread and, yes, indeed, those stitches show at every rip on both corners of the bed.
Surprisingly, the mends don’t bother me nearly as much as the rips did. And it doesn’t hurt that I now have a fake fur throw at the bottom of the bed.
It’s gotten cold so the fur throw is coming in handy. And if Jim goes after it with his claws, it won’t hurt it.
Stupid cat. Sigh.
