One of my dearest friends in the world was planning to visit me a week and a half ago. A few days prior to the visit she sent me and email to say that her beloved cat Kahlua, who had lived with her for around 17 years, had passes away.
I felt sad for her. Kahlua was a lovely cat to look at, though I have to admit I didn't know her as she was very reluctant to come out of hiding when ever I was there.
I wanted to do something to honour her, so what better than to make a wall hanging.
I used a pattern by designer Pam Bono called 'Cat Naps' and made just a single block. I changed the colours to match Kahlua's colouring.
This finished wall hanging is shown here. It measures 14 inches tall by 16 wide.
My friend really likes it and says it looks just like her cat.
